WELCOME to BackPorch Banjo
Bluegrass Band 2021

We are normally an extremely 
active bluegrass band  from
Parksville-Qualicum area on
Vancouver Island, B. C.

BackPorch Banjo came together
 from a desire for all of us
to play good bluegrass music.

During this pandemic we are
not able to play live
  so we wait for times to 
get better.
