    Following my education quest....

    Deadwood (HBO Western Series)- what sample libraries would get one close to this?

    Junkyard Percussion - Banjo Textures - Fiddle scrapes?

    Any of you lovely people have any thoughts?

    Check here for a couple of fiddles (one just out, one forthcoming):

    https://vi-control.net/community/threads/fiddle-for-americana-western.75835/

    "Banjo textures" has got to be a limited world, and I don't even know how many banjo libraries there are in the world -- off the top of my head I only know of the RealiBanjo. If there were anything that would fit this bill, it would be something tonally along the lines of the old Spitfire LABS series, but I don't know if they every did a banjo. Maybe their Charango would work as a cheat?

    Junkyard percussion libraries are all over the place, and they're usually pretty cheap -- e.g., Soundiron's Cathedral of Junk.

    Anyway, good luck -- I love that theme, so I hope if you do a mockup you'll post back here!

    Bolder Sounds has a very good banjo in addition to the recently released fiddle. You may also want to take a look at Insanity Samples Folk Fiddle, which (going by the demo) seems to have a harder-edged rosin-ish sound, to my ear at least.

    8Dio's Misfits 3-String Diddley might be useful for layering plucked strings in the Deadwood theme as well.
