  1. I enjoyed watching the YouTube clip provided by the link you posted. I’m going to show it to my 12 year old daughter to see if she’ll let me drag her to that Banjo fest!

  2. Eddie Peabody? Most famous banjo player ever? Who are we kidding? I would think Earl Scruggs and David Grisman would come in far ahead of him. Hell, Steve Martin and the kid from Deliverance would come in before him. (Of course, I don’t take Mr. Peabody’s lack of noteriety to reflect in any way on the coolness of Banjo-rama…)

  3. Unfortuantely, the world of 4-string banjo players (Peabody) and 5-string banjo players (Scruggs) rarely mix. I appreciate both, but some devotees rarely peek over the fence to see what their neighbors are up to.

    And, by the way FP, who are you kidding? The most famous banjo player of any kind is, of course, Steve Martin.

  4. Ack. Why did I have to post Kermit playing the banjo? Now I can’t get “The Rainbow Connection” out of my head.

    Seriously though, he asks why there are so many songs about rainbows, and I can’t name a single one, other than “The Rainbow Connection.”

  5. Well, there’s “Somewhere over the Rainbow.” (There, now you can banish Kermit and deal with ukuleles echoing in your ears for the rest of the afternoon.)

  6. RunnerGirl, you’re forgetting “Over the Rainbow.” Still that’s only 2 rainbow songs which doesn’t seem like nearly enough to back up Kermit’s claim. Even if you count the Rainbow Brite theme song it doesn’t justify it. Maybe there used to be a bunch of rainbow sings and then Kermit made his little comment so everybody stopped writing them.

    Whatever the case, I gosta learn Rainbow Connection for the banjo now.
