Chris Lord is a banjo player, founding member of The Vanguards, creator of the London Bluegrass Band and editor of the quarterly publication, the British Bluegrass News. Bluegrass banjo is his passion, though he can sometimes be seen on rhythm guitar if called for. Outside of his main bands, he often guests with Lunch Special and fronts the occasional show with partner Laura Nailor on fiddle. As well as playing bluegrass music, he composes original material for The Vanguards and is available for bluegrass banjo lessons. His banjo influences include Ralph Stanley, Eddie Adcock, Don Reno and of course, Earl Scruggs.
