Bound To Ride. Using an upstroke style which I think may have been popular in Kentucky in the days of old. #oldtimebanjo #upstroke #kentucky #oldtimemusic
Pretty stoked for my "new" Vega Whyte Laydie, No. 2 to arrive next week. Bought this off of a good friend of mine It's an original 5-string dating back to 1918 with thin shank Liberty banjo company planetary tuners so the tuner holes weren't drilled out.  I've hope to buy this banjo for the past seven years and it's finally becoming a reality. #banjo #banjos #vega #oldtimebanjo #clawhammerbanjo #dropthumbsnotbombs

Playing a little bit of Little Birdie, a mountain standard I learned off Roscoe Holcomb. Took a while to get the hang of up-stroke banjo, I still need more practice. #oldtimebanjo #upstrokebanjo

Using my new Japanese razor saw to cut some Ambrosia Maple from Kentucky. I am using my left hand, and I am a righty! Cutting on the pull seems to give more control for delicate hardwood cuts. #fretless #oldtimebanjo #clawhammer #handcrafted #traditional #banjo #handmade #oldtime #banjos #ambrosia #razorsaw #maple #hardwood

Hey Old Time Community, this banjo needs a new home!  Check out @banjobeulah365 page for further detail, she wants to auction this pretty parts banjer to benefit her Aunts family who lost their home to Irma! Please repost, share this post or hers, pass around! The old time community is great because of its sharing and giving and love and humanity with all walks. It takes a village! #irmarelief #hurricaneirma #banjo #oldtimebanjo #oldtimemusic #dropthumbsnotbombs #clawhammer #auction #banjobuilding #banjoshop #woodworking #irma #houston #texas

I was going to say "lost gander, sort of" but I'm pretty sure a certain amount of randomness is part of the tradition with this one so 🤷‍♀️ #oldtimemusic #oldtimebanjo #banjo #westvirginia

Me singing Little Birdie from my Appalachian String Band album.  Banjo Tuned to eb,B,F#,G#,C#. Originally learned from Morgan Sexton of Line Fork, KY.  Full version on YouTube •✖️🖤✖️• •Lyrics-

I used to be a little bitty boy
playing around in the sand
now I am a great big boy
call myself a man

Little birdie, little birdie
where you been so long?
I ain’t had no good loving
since that you’ve been gone

Little birdie, little birdie
what makes you fly so high?
my true love, she’s with me
we live up in the sky!

Little birdie, little birdie
what makes your wings so blue?
I’ve been all around this wide world
love no one but you

Little birdie, little birdie
sing to me your song
its a short time to be with you
and a long time to be gone

Well sing girl, oh single girl
go on strolling by
married girl, oh married girl
hang your head and cry

I wish I was in Tennessee
sitting on a rail
arms around my true loves neck
and a possum by the tail

Our next performance is just about a month away and is a Square Dance at @hoedownontheharpeth  on October 14. Make plans now and knock the dust off those dancin' shoes.

Eighteen and Twelve March, g# EG# BE tuning, 2 finger index lead. Finally getting over my banjo burnout. Got Spotify and started listening to the stuff that excited me when I first started playing, and come to find out, it still does. #banjo #2fingerbanjo #oldtimebanjo #oldtimemusic #deeringbanjos #dropthumbsnotbombs

Great warm tone, 8" steel rim with Calfskin head. I'm gonna miss having this 'Pony' around... need to make a batch of them! .

This vintage banjo came in for repair  and was played by a Civil War veteran from Mecklenburg Co. VA. Great great Grandfather who fought alongside Stonewall, was known to play old civil war tunes on this banjo. New small shaft tuners, strings, neck work and a custom bridge were added. 23" scale pine neck with 8" steel pot, Calfskin head. Great warm tone. Breaking Up Christmas in G. .

A/D Scale mountain banjo.
Rough and rural sound from Appalachian mountains, but built in Italy.

This week's #banjototw is Pretty Little Dog chosen by the wonderful @libbydecamp and played in aEAC# E tuning on the @rk__hudson fretless slot head. Accidentally posted Cold Frosty Morning thinking it was Pretty Little Dog and thereby exposed my darkest secret: most modal tunes sound exactly the same to me. Bound to be that way I suppose! @jdwilkes @d.cassells @zacpelo @cumberland_banjos @squirrelbanjo @cwdeanbanjos @seedersinstruments @lawbowick @lukestachlermusic @carljma @domhoyt @sweat_michaels and I apologize if I left anyone out. #banjo #fretlessbanjo #oldtimebanjo #oldtimemusic #clawhammerbanjo #hudsonbanjos #dropthumbsnotbombs

Curly Maple neck, Purpleheart fingerboard and Cocobolo peghead!  The design of the peghead is my Burningtown model, I love the flow of the symmetry! The goatskin is Black Walnut pulp dyed on a thick organic gourd, and it is also open back!!

Played a lot of songs and had fun on @playmusicontheporch day. A fitting end with "Gimme That Old Time Religion".

First submission for @playmusicontheporch day. It's 109 degrees, so I'm inside by the door to my porch. 🙂 This is a tune #DocWatson is known for called "Katie Morey". Unusual gCGCD# tuning. #playmusicontheporchday

What does the contemporary banjo look like? Every Renan Banjo begins with a sketch. I am inspired by the world around me and often pull ideas from architecture and visual art. Each banjo should be original, a reflection of my artistic soul and sensibility. I put importance in the materials and how they are organized. Equal time is spent building, finishing and setup. If distance adds beauty then I say 'look at the details'. Renan Banjos are a careful mastery of art and engineering. .

Old Jawbone, gDGBD tuning on the @deeringbanjos White Lotus. Today is my last day with ol' Whitey here, and I'm about to restring her and clean her up and send her back to Deering. Thanks to @deeringbanjos and especially @jthebass for letting me play it for the past 3 months. There will be exciting things happening down the pike for sure. #banjo #clawhammerbanjo #oldtimebanjo #oldtimemusic #deeringbanjos #deeringwhitelotus #dropthumbsnotbombs
I have no idea how this got so dark 😂...oh well that's not the part that matters I guess. Rainy day frailing in the loft. This is "Streak O' Lean, Streak O' Fat." Heard it for the first time at an Old Time jam this weekend and had to learn it. 4 parts in Double C. Have you heard other versions of this tune? Would love to know about them..

"Calton Weaver". Dug this unknown maker banjo from deep in the closet. Don't know anything about it, and it's got a serious buzz on the low string, but I squeaked a tune out of it. 🙂

One my way back home after grad school, I stopped by Circleville, Ohio to pick this banjo up from Tony Ellis. Tony played with Bill Monroe for a few year, has written some amazing tunes, played on an episode of sponge bob, and befriended/played with @stevemartintogo. I'm going to be building a 5 string for Tony out of this Vega Whyte Laydie #banjo #appalachian #oldtimebanjo #oldtime #cwdeanbanjos #pnw #seattlecreatives #seattleoldtime

Cripple Creek • G • I don't know exactly the influence to this tune, but I feel I can at least relate to the title. I'm dealing with a torn meniscus in both knees, currently, and that's making life hard as well as uncomfortable.
