Probably one of the youngest professional classic banjo performers in the world today is Elias Sibley, who started having lessons with James Allgrove when he was ten years old. Elias has attended many banjo rallies since he first started playing the banjo; he has also performed at the Reading International Banjo Festival several times, and at the Bath International Banjo Festival, as well as many other venues. In the Millennium year he made a recording of some of the classic banjo music he performed during that year. The CD of this recording is available now. (For more information about this CD see the CD Recordings page on this website.)
Elias also composes music for the classic banjo, some of these compositions can be found by clicking here or going to the Music webpage on this website.
