So, what do you play, instrument-wise? I play in a Civil War reenactment band (Civil War Comrades) and play a modern (1923) fretted banjo and a (modern copy) 1854 Boucher Minstrel banjo. I sometime play a tack-head banjo or a flush-fret 1870-80s model, depending on the gig. But I mainly play the Boucher.
Our band plays a lot of Stephen Foster (our "persona" is a parlor-music ensemble, not a "soldier band"), H.C. Work, Dan Emmett and Sep Winner, though I can play lots of fiddle tunes as well. Since the band-leader is a singer, we do more songs than tunes, unless we're playing a dance.
So what do you play?
