Clawhammer Banjo Weekend, May 2-4 2008
- 4th Annual Dusty Strings Clawhammer Banjo Weekend
May 2-4, 2008
May 2-4, 2008 Dusty Strings will present our 4th Annual Clawhammer
Banjo Weekend, with a return of some wonderful teachers and performers
including Bob Carlin, Cathy Fink, Jeanie Murphy, and Candy Goldman.
The weekend will feature several workshops, a Saturday night concert,
and opportunities to meet and jam with other banjoists of all levels.
New this year will be a series of "Getting Started" classes
specifically designed for first-time beginners. This will be taught
parallel with other beginning classes for players who already have a
little experience. Having these two "beginner tracks" offers the wide
spectrum of "beginning" students the opportunity to select the class
level that will benefit them most. Also, Dusty Strings will have
banjos available to rent for $25 for the weekend.
Our Friday evening introductory session will include organized jamming
(slow, intermediate, and advanced) led by the instructors with the
help of guest musicians. This time to play some music, reconnect with
friends, and meet new friends in the banjo and old-time music
community is FREE and open to anyone interested in or curious about
clawhammer banjo or the Banjo Weekend.
All Clawhammer Banjo Weekend events will take place at the Dusty
Strings Acoustic Music Shop, 3406 Fremont Ave. N, Seattle, WA 98103.
Admission price for the full weekend is $195, which includes a Friday
evening introductory session that is open to all participants, four
workshops on Saturday and Sunday, and a Saturday night concert.
Workshops, except for the Sunday afternoon "Roundtable Discussion,"
can be taken à la carte for $50 each, and extra concert tickets are
available for $18.
