Bill Evans Concerts and Workshops In Oregon & Washington, January 18-20, 2019

Posted by bevans on Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Hi friends! I'll be heading up I-5 from my California home for three concerts and two workshops in Portland, Oregon & Seattle and Bellingham, Washington this coming weekend. For this year's "Banjo in America" shows, I'll be bringing even more banjos than usual, including a prewar flathead '30 Granada and a '30 flathead style-3 Gibson, a Cole Eclipse and Vega Whyte Laydie #7 from the early 20th century and three Jim Hartel 19th century banjo replicas.. My banjo workshops are topics oriented: "Working Up Fiddle Tunes" and "Up The Neck Back Up." Tab examples will be provided for everything that I teach in both sessions. These are open to all levels past total newbies and it's likely that there will just be a few folks in these sessions, which makes it ideal for lots of one-on-one teaching at these sessions.

These will likely be my only appearances in the Northwest for this year. I hope you'll consider joining me! Here's all of the details:

Friday, January 18: Portland, OR, The Banjo in America at Abbie Weisenbloom's Amazing House Concert series in Inner SE Portland. Potluck at 6:30 p.m., concert at 7:30. Suggested donation is $15-25. Contact Abbie at 503-233-4945 or for info. Reservations recommended as this show often sells out.
