String Banjo

is bluegrass the only type of music for a 5 string banjo?

All I ever here played on the 5 string banjo is bluegress. So I was woundering if thear was any other styels that sounds good on a 5 string.

Of course not, only your fantasy sets the boundaries for its uses.

Like Tony says, Bela Fleck - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZjZx0j1aDs - has dome some amazing things with a banjo (acoustic and electric)

Then you have bands like Buffalo Springfield ('Bluebird'), Travis (the tune 'Sing') and Mumford & Sons - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGKfrgqWcv0 - using banjo in different configurations.

Then of course you have some the earlier Eagles stuff ... and same with Neil Young.

In a heavier setting: Zakk Wylde used a banjo in the band Pride & Glory ('Losing your mind'). Led Zeppelin had some stuff with banjo in it too.
