Hello All --

Can anyone point me to a list of current stay-at-home online/Facebook/Instagram/whatever Banjo-related shows and workshops?

I would swear I saw a link to a spreadsheet someplace that included the Bela Fleck/Abi Washburn live shows, the American Banjo Museum livestreams, I think We Banjo 3 was on there, etc. etc. Now of course I can't find it.

Any help appreciated. Everyone stay well!

Jens Kruger is doing free lessons on his youtube channel. He has 11 short lessons posted so far and he only started yesterday.  Three finger, I believe.   They are short, maybe 6 minutes each, and the idea is you do each one as much as you need, and then go to the next one.  Or skip ahead if you are not a rank beginner.   Jens is an amazing picker, so this seems like a real gift.

pickyfingersbanjo podcast has awesome interviews with many well known and lesser known banjoists. Mostly Scruggs style but some classical and other styles.

get up in the cool podcast has clawhammer/fiddle based interviews and jams.

Bill Evans has done a "live" worksop on facebook and you can watch them "later".
Jim Pankey, has done a Q&A on youtube.

Bela and Abigail have done a lot of Youtube sessions. Go to Youtube and search for Bela Fleck.  Also search for 'banjo house lockdown'  Check out their facebook page as well.
The first is one is interesting.  The second 2 are Bela and Abigail in PJ's and night gowns and Juno in the background. I believe that they have a regular show on their facebook page.  'We're in quarantine so we decided to to create Banjo House Lockdown, a Facebook Live show every Friday night at 7pm ET!'  

They are also posting the banjo house lockdown sessions on Youtube.

Thanks everybody! I have been watching Jim, Bill, Bela and Abi and have enjoyed it all. And I watched a live banjo setup session on Facebook that the American Banjo Museum did this week -- also great. I just thought somebody might have or have seen an integrated spreadsheet or calendar of these live events. Maybe I dreamed it....
