Banjo Fest in Oklahoma City was excellent! There were 5-string and 4-string pickers. This was one of the events where I was not carrying a banjo, took a quick video. This was up on the 50th floor with a great view (high level!). The two musicians playing are Danny Rubio on Tuba and Lee Floyd on banjo, both outstanding New Orleans musicians. The Kruger Brothers played up there later that night, as did Lincoln Hensley and some others. Gary "Biscuit" Davis also played during the fest several times. He is now (as of this September) the only 5-time National Bluegrass Banjo champion! If you get the chance, check it out sometime.

Lee's plectrum banjo playing is always a stellar show-stopping performance.  Here's another version he did in New Orleans: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6gli0fss8c
