"Tanfield and Hill performed banjo and mandolin duets in Sheffield in the 1890s- the banjoist in the duo was possibly George Roger Tanfield (1870-1946)."

"I don't know if this helps but in February 1904 there was a concert in Sheffield with banjo played by Mr Alf Pond.  Maybe he would have had connections or even been your elusive Great Grandfather?????"

Help needed to identify mystery banjo player

Dear forum members,I have a photograph of my great-grandfather who was a professional musician in the 1890's and played in the Sheffield area.  I would very much like to know  if anyone recognises him and about the banjo he has in his photo as he's a complete mystery to our family.  He may have played in the Travellers Rest pub in Oughtibridge in early 1894 where my great grandmother was living at the time.Unfortunately I have no name for my great-grandfather and don’t know anything about him…See More
