If you're in the area, this is a fun event. Mostly clawhammer and two-finger NC Piedmont old-time banjo in the old-time banjo competition. At least one stroke-style enthusiast. :o) No minstrels that I've seen, but it's only because they're so rare. It's in Chatham County, 15 minutes north of Pittsboro. Two Mike Ramsey banjos given to winner of competition and to a random banjo competitor this year.
