The season’s holidays are fast upon us, and I know many of you are wondering what to get for your beloved banjoist (or aspiring banjoist).
Consider giving the gift of the Suwannee Banjo Camp, where that special person can join with other banjoists in a celebration of the banjo.
Spouses and significant others, sick of all that banjo racket? Send your banjoist to Florida, and get some peace and quiet! Or, if you like the banjo then come along and take classes yourself, or just attend the concerts and jams in our spouse program. Never played before? No problem! We have classes for those who are complete novices to highly advanced players!
Bluegrass Banjo: Scott Anderson, Janet Beazley, Gerald Jones, Ned Lubrecki, James McKinney, Alan Munde, Tony Trischka,
Old-time Banjo: Paul Brown, Bob Carlin, Adam Hurt, Mark Johnson, Brad Leftwich, Chuck Levy, Terri McMurray, and Ken Perlman
Old-Time Fiddle: James Leva
Guitar: Danny Smith
The Suwannee Banjo Camp takes place March 27-29, in beautiful Live Oak, Florida, with an optional extra day on March 26th. Our camp features classes, demonstrations, concerts and jams, in bluegrass and old-time banjo styles, and includes a guitar track and fiddle track, as well as instruction in minstrel banjo and the African akonting (ekonting). The atmosphere and schedule are designed to allow ample opportunity for casual interactions between staff and students. There is plenty of time to get to know our staff of great and notable performers and teachers, as well a chance to share music and make friendships with other students.
