Internationally touring old time musician and teacher Hilarie Burhans brings us a beginner friendly banjo workshop for those wishing to pick up Claw Hammer style banjo.  She'll cover claw hammer technique, basic notes and chords, as well as different types of banjos and playing styles. 

This workshop is for ages 8 thru adult.

If players wish to borrow a banjo from the musical lending library please pre-register so we can make sure to have enough for everyone.  If you have an extra Banjo to loan to another workshop participant please also let us know.
