- Bluegrass, Jazz
- PF135 JD Crowe Signature
Eli Gilbert grew up in the small town of North Yarmouth, Maine, and found the banjo after hearing J.D. Crowe at a local bluegrass festival. Eli's background in both Jazz and Bluegrass give him a unique and versatile approach to both acoustic and electric banjo playing. Eli currently holds the banjo positions in Dreamcatcher, a bluegrass band based in Johnson City, Tennessee, and Laura Orshaw and The New Velvet Band, a Bluegrass band based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Eli uses PF-135 J.D. Crowe Signature strings.
