My Seven String Banjo

Hello there,

I play Irish Music on a 20s John Gray Tenor Banjo & I'm learning a little Old Time on an S.S. Stewart Banjo.

However, I have this old, what I believe to be a 'Seven String Minstrel Banjo', so I have posted some photos of it & I'm here to learn a little more about it and about Minstrel Banjos, their history, etc.

Hi Dick,

That banjo looks very interesting, and so does the fact that you live in Ireland. If you are ever in Edinburgh, drop me a line. Not many minstrel enthusiasts around here!

Hi Dick,
It would be good to meet up in Edinburgh. I have a fretless SS Stewart and a Thompson and Odell fretted from 1890, Boston. So, remember to drop me a line when you are heading back here.

PS I remember the 70s well, but from Dundee...not something I want to remember...I married an Edinburgh lass. Smart move.
