Default Banjo-based folk?

Hi there.

I'm looking for any folk with a mix of banjo, acoustic guitar, and harmonica.. and anything else with said instruments.

I'm new to this site and this forum seems to be my favorite thus far.. I see a lot of people with good tastes in music!

Thank you,
-Matthew

William Elliott Whitmore is a great place to start out, he does everything you've mentioned, here's a few video clips of him playing to see if it works with you:





If any of it strikes your fancy I've got one or two of his albums uploaded and can shoot you a link.

Pretty cool music.. I don't know if I like his voice or not though. He's like a mix of folk music and bluesy singing.. I guess?

Thanks for showing me though.

Well I know Pattsy Watchorn from The Dubliners accompany his songs with a banjo...but that's about it, sorry.

The Be Good Tanyas
banjos, mandalins, guitars, ukuleles (well maybe not ukuleles),
I grew up listening to these girls, they are incredile. 'It's Not Happening' is one of my all time favourite songs!!!

Jon Allen covers guitar and harmonica, not noticed a banjo as of yet, but i'd recommend a listen
