Bluegrass! YES! Can anybody listen to banjo music and NOT tap their toes?
Check out Pete Wernick/Flexigrass.
A couple friends of mine. Elijah on the banjo and the guy on guitar Jody.

The gentleman singing in the front video "Albert Seed" I first met in '98 or '99 in NewLiskeard, He's was just a farmer there.
But a great voice and he knows lots of these old songs
Here's another Old fella.....this one is an east coaster......
Pretty darned good! Thanks.
OMG! I hadn't heard those songs for years and years. Thanks for posting.
Great to see so many bluegrass fans here! Thanks all!
I learned to play the banjo in the '40s, just a kid then but played all my life until arthritis made it impossible. The 5 string Gibson still sits in a place of honour in my living room though, tuned and ready to go. Just hoping someday a banjo picker will turn up and give us a tune.
Since you seem to live in southern Ontario, you must have heard of the Tottenham Bluegrass festival about 4o minutes north of Toronto...

I've quit trailering for about 5 years now, but I still go to that festival every year.....I stay at my daughter's in Mississauga and commute to the festival over the weekend
It's a picture of my old trailer parked at the Tottenham festival on my Youtube front page!
