When did the banjo enter into the family of acceptable instruments for Irish traditional music?

Has it? :twisted:

I know a banjo player who says he likes sitting next to accordionists. Makes the banjo sound "almost delicate", he says.

Actually, I've heard some unusually compelling Trad banjo on occasion, especially one time by Larry Nugent's sister, recorded on cassette tape in a kitchen. Before then I never imagined one could squeeze emotion out of a banjo, but she sure did it. Must run in the blood.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
