Still playing a 5-string, but is there a plectrum in his left hand, I wonder? You'd need one with that rabble. 

His left hand is occupied making a chord on the fingerboard. His right hand could well be holding a plectrum.

Doh, that's what I mean to. Need an afternoon nap, I think!

I go dyslexic at least once a week.

I wonder if Grimshaw even used an open back banjo with this band. I would think a tone ring and resonator would help out a lot.

That's him second from right with the Savoy Quartet - hot trotting it at the Savoy Hotel.

And here he is second from left, with Ivor Mairants second from right:

Here's a recording of the latter quartet:

- sorry, a failed attempt to upload an mp3 of Whistling Rufus. It's probably on the Jukebox anyway. Failing that, you can hear it here: https://robmackillop.net/tenor-banjo/

PS How do you share an mp3 here?
