John Taylor

General Details

Bluegrass banjophonist since age 17 – And in the last 35 years I have played (and continue to play) in a large number of established bands, as well as appearing on a number of bluegrass, country and folk recordings.

Currently banjophonist-in-residence with Paverty Bush Band.

Contributing author “The Fifth String” (an article dedicated to the 5 string banjo) in Trad and Now Magazine 2003-2009.

Pretty well known on the festival circuit as someone who will jam all night and damn the consequences.

My style is firmly and defiantly traditional – preferring Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys to any other band, anytime.

I also play bluegrass guitar and double bass and have a hell of a lot of fun footling around with the mandolin as they are nifty little contraptions.
