    The Irish plectrum style has now been adapted to 5-string banjo, as well, which uses an entirely different tuning. Bela Fleck has led the way in developing a single-string approach to playing Irish tunes on the 5-string, which has resulted in a lot of U.S. players being exposed to this music...

    I'm heading there on Friday, so I'm all ears if anyone happens to have a recommendation. At the very least, I'm hoping to score some Irish caps in their native habitat. ;) Cheers, JtL
