Calling all early banjo, fiddle, guitar, tambo, and bones players to save the date for the second Sweeney Early Banjo Convergence! We will once again gather on the beautiful grounds of the Appomattox Courthouse National Historic Park, where Sweeney was born and learned to play the banjo, for some merry music making and fun. This year will be much less formal in structure than the 2013 event, as we plan to keep lectures to a minimum and banjo stroking to a maximum! The National Historic Park, via Minstrel Banjo member David Wooldridgend us cheap accommodations in a house very close to the park. Here we can bunk down and have access to toilet and kitchen facilities. In exchange, we will have the opportunity to provide a little concert of period music for their visitors. Period dress is of course suggested, but not required. I will post more info as the event develops. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
