Here’s some good banjo news, at least for those banjo slingers with an Old Time interest near Winchester VA:

Adam Hurt and David McLaughlin will be hosting a banjo weekend -- March 4, 5, and 6 -- at the Nancy Shepherd House Inn B&B in Winchester VA, plus a Saturday evening concert with Beth Hartness (guest appearance by David McLaughlin). Enrollment is for intermediate to advanced banjo players and will be capped at ten students at $200.00 per student for the whole weekend, plus lodging and meals. Adam's program might include the following subjects:

Exploring alternate tunings
Mastering the mechanics of tone
The "cluck" and other rhythmic space-fillers
Developing efficient right- and left-hand action
How to play along in jam sessions on unfamiliar tunes
Learning tunes from a fiddler
Playing well with a fiddler
Dealing with syncopation
Repertoire-building will be a component of the workshop

There’s more information at David McLaughlin’s website, or call his phone:

Adam’s website bio has recently been updated at adamhurt.com/bio.html
I have hosted Adam’s workshops at my home in Arlington VA and they are usually quick sellouts and memorable musical events.

Here is a link to an interview with David, plus a brief biography. He is a very interesting and thoughtful guy, and a fantastic musician on many instruments including banjo:

And of course Adam was the subject of a featured article in this month’s Banjo Newsletter.

V/R,

The student enrollment and concert are both sold out as of several days ago.
