Looking for tenor banjo music in folk styles other than Dixieland-style jazz (or jazz at all, really) or Irish/Celtic jigs and reels, etc.

Are there country/folk players I can look into?

I suppose ragtime is technically a jazz style... sigh. I hate labels.

I'm just really looking for ballads, sentimental or funny songs... things I can play in my busking act. Sort of Uncle Dave Macon and John Hartford meet Jimmy Durante.

Tried French stuff? Check out my YouTube vids:

Boum

Au Revoir (J'attendrai)

La Vie en Rose

There's a load of free tab and arrangements I've made at my website:

There are innumerable tunes that are neither Jazz nor Celtic that you could use a tenor banjo on

Mento (Jamaican)
It uses tenor banjo, it's funny, and it's used for busking.

I like to play old pop songs from the twenties and thirties with our jug band: Boodle-Am-Shake, Sweet Sue, Five Foot Two/Please Don't Talk About Me, Somebody Stole My Gal, I'm Satisfied With My Gal, Walkin' My Baby Back Home, Lindberg Hop. . .
Some bluesy tunes like They're Red Hot and St. James Infirmary work well too.

There's plenty of fiddle tunes. That's mostly what I play on a tenor.
