Badass One-Man Banjo Band!

I know a lot of people don’t share my appreciation and admiration for the banjo, but I don’t care. When played well the banjo is an amazing instrument. This guy plays it well, and he plays it with attitude. His name is Phillip Roebuck, and he manages to play the banjo, sing, and play a tambourine and bass drum. Here he’s playing an original tune called “Summons Song”, and it’s a great example of how great music can be when you take traditional bluegrass and update it with modern attitude.

As cool as this is, I do have to admit it made me think of Groundskeeper Willie’s one-man performance in the park…
