Suwannee Banjo Camp around the corner.

Posted by ChuckJo on Saturday, February 11, 2012

Hello Friends,


Greetings from Gainesville, Florida.  Well, we are well into February, which places us just about a month before Suwannee Banjo Camp, March 16-18th (with an extra day on March 15th for those who want to come early).  Our camp takes place at O’Leno State Park on the beautiful Santa Fe River in High Springs Florida.  The river actually disappears, flowing underground to reemerge miles away.  Each year the camp seems to get better, with plenty of chances to learn, to share and to dive deep into the river of banjo.  Our world-renowned instructors cover a wide territory of banjo, from traditional and more modern styles of bluegrass, through clawhammer and up-picking old-time styles, and including minstrel, parlor (classical) banjo and even the African ekonting (akonting).  We also have wonderful old-time fiddle track, plus classes in guitar, banjo set-up and more.


Our Instructors:
Old Time Banjo - Greg C. Adams, Cathy Barton Para, Mac Benford, Paul Brown, Mark Johnson, Brad Leftwich, Chuck Levy, & Ken Perlman
Bluegrass Banjo - Scott Anderson, Janet Davis, James McKinney, Alan Munde, & Tony Trischka
Old-time Fiddle - Erynn Marshall



Our Preliminary 2012 Schedule is now up on our website, click on the link near the top of the page ("Hot Off the Press: Our 2012 Schedule"), or go to our menu, select "Program & Schedule" and click on the link labeled "2012 Schedule."
