I see that the comedian Frank Skinner was given an MBE in the New Year’s Honours List.  Well deserved, of course, but even more so because Frank is a five-string banjo player.   

Frank joins a very small pool of deserving banjo players that currently includes Sir Billy Connolly CBE.  

Are classic banjo players aware of other living players who have received honours?  It would be interesting to keep an up-to-date list.

Good thoughts Tony... there must be more banjoists out there who are recognised, or even noticed ;-)

Obviously humilty prevents me from bragging, but I was awared an honour for inventing the door knocker... I received the Nobel Prize.
