Eric Weissberg was indeed the banjo player in the "Deliverance" version of "Dueling Banjos." I once attended a taping of a PBS show in Schenectady, NY. The show featured Tommy Makem and July Collins. Eric was a back-up musician. During a break in the performances, he sat down next to me in a vacant front row seat. I boldly said, "You are the guy who played 'Dueling Banjos,' aren't you?" He smiled and said, "I've never lived that down."
