Scott Anthony

Scott Anthony received his first banjo at Christmas 60 years ago. Currently, he’s leader of the Golden Gate Rhythm Machine and is banjoist with the Bob Schulz Frisco Jazz Band. Scott is also a supremely gifted painter whose work has been presented in galleries for over 50 years, and, as a luthier, specializes in crafting four-string archtop and other acoustic guitars and baritone ukuleles. The current article is adapted from the “Banjo Bio” posted on his website. Visit Scott online at
