Hi everyone,

My Grandpa used to have a banjo that he'd string with fish guts. Never had the honor of hearing him play. I just started playing myself.

Would love to find some local banjo players around to meet, hang with and learn from. If anything, I'd love to find any "hidden gems" via live music, bars/taverns around the area. I live in Avon, IN which is in the greater Indianapolis, IN area (west-side). However, I'd be willing to travel around Indianapolis to hang.

I don't know anything about the music scene around Avon IN, but I sure would like to hear more about this banjo strung up with fish guts ! smiley

There are more banjo pickers in & around Indy than you can shake a stick at. Find one and that will lead to many more. If all else fails, you could always advertise on old fashion cork bulletin boards at work, or where ever else you find them. FWIW: I grew up on west side Indy.

Good to know! Thanks!
