John Taylor

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 working as bass and banjo with The FunKaars

Contributing author "The Fifth String" (an article dedicated to the 5 string banjo) in Trad and Now Magazine

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