About The Irish Tenor Banjo

The Irish tenor banjo is the name given to the most popular style of banjo played in traditional Irish music today. Historically it is not an indigenous Irish instrument however.

The banjo originated in Africa where it evolved from West African string instruments to the instrument that we know and love today. It made its way here from the USA in the late 19th and early 20th century and has since become an incredibly popular instrument within Irish folk music.

The Irish tenor banjo as it's known today is a short neck 4 string banjo that typically features a 17 fret or 19 fret scale length and is tuned to GDAE – one octave lower than the Irish fiddle and mandolin.
