8 Year Old Banjo Boy


I cannot hide my love and pride for the only instrument that can call the US its birthplace*: The Banjo. When I hear those sweet backwoods melodies coming from those steel strings over that membrane, its all I can do to stop myself from throwing on my overalls, a straw hat, and start bouncing spoons on my knee.

Well I finally lost it tonight, after seeing these kids rock the banjo harder than I’ve ever seen. The banjo player himself is only 8 years old, but I feel they all are deserving of Man Cards – especially for rocking both a dead fox and the Millennium Falcon in their room.

Check the video out:

What do you gent’s think, do these boys deserve their Man Cards?
