Two Many Banjos is the creation of banjoist and songwriter Marc Gartman. Along with fellow banjo player Dave Carroll from the Duluth-based band Trampled By Turtles, they’ve formed a five-piece band to play mostly original material. It’s not traditional bluegrass by any means, just music that lends itself to banjos; in this case, two of them.
Everybody knows a banjo joke or two. But what happens when the plucky bluegrass instrument takes over a band? Can you have too much of a good thing?
