"Ability to play the banjo soon places one in a social position to pick and choose from scores of social invitations. Everywhere, the banjoist is assured of a hearty welcome..."

from THE BANJO, a 1927 pamphlet published by Gibson, Inc.

fiddlers at 2nd anniversary party
We are a group of friends who recreationally play old time music in the DC metropolitan area.  We affectionately refer to ourselves as FOB or Friends of Old Time Banjo but we equally love fiddles, guitars and all the traditional instruments found in old time string bands.  We offer this site as a way to share resources with others who love to play the old tunes.
