A Southern Banjo Styles Sampler
Instructor: Seth Swingle
Ages: Teens & Adults
Description: Take a musical stroll through the South, the fertile soil on which dozens of banjo styles have sprouted. Inspired by Mike Seeger’s groundbreaking album, “Southern Banjo Sounds,” we’ll investigate some of the many lesser-known and personal styles of the banjoists of yesteryear, from 3-finger showstoppers to delicate index-lead waltzes, strumming and picking our way from North Georgia to East Tennessee. We’ll talk history and technique, learn about some of the musicians who made the banjo such a unique instrument, and play everything from breakdowns to courting songs. Something for the curious banjoist!
Please bring:
-Functional clawhammer banjo

-Pen/pencil and paper optional
Tuesdays, 4/23 – 5/28
7pm – 7:55pm
