Banjo player wanted for folk duo/band


Banjo player wanted for folk duo/band. I play guitar, sing, and write a lot of lyrics which I'm currently putting to music.

I play with someone who play various instruments, including banjo and who is amazing mandolin. I love the sound of banjo, mandolin, guitar (and fiddle once I find a player) - and would like to have both banjo and mandolin at the same time. Ideally looking for someone who's relatively good at clawhammer.

Influences/inspiration/things I like listening to include: Bob Dylan, The Be Good Tanyas,
Joan Baez, Wilco, Nancy Kerr & James Fagan, Josienne Clarke, Martin Carthy & Dave Swarbrick, Pentangle, Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, John Renbourn, Martin Mumford and Sons fans please.

We can play a lot of trad stuff and have written lots of nice arrangements to trad songs.
I write a lot of quite complex and unusual lyrics and am currently working on arranging them to music. I really like telling stories with words and want the music to reflect those stories. Anyone creative who enjoys composing music and would enjoy getting involved in this process would be great - and anyone who'd be up for doing some vocal harmonies.
