What banjo should i buy?

Hi, so i would like to buy my first banjo. I play the guitar, mandolin, and the ukulele. I will mostly be playing folk music. Some people say that if i would like to play folk i should get a banjo that doent have a back but Mumford and Sons use banjos that have backs. Im confused. Also do they make banjos that you can hookup to an amp? What are some companies that are good to buy from? How much should i expect to spend on a nice banjo? Thanks for all the help!
I'd like to play music like mumford and sons.:)

Your best bet is a Deering Goodtime model, like this one:

It's available in both open back and resonator models so the choice is yours to make. In general, if you're not going to be playing bluegrass music you're better off with an open back banjo, Mumford and Sons notwithstanding.

You can add a pickup to any banjo, like these:
