Anyone else here attend banjo Camp North in Massachusetts besides me? On the registration form, there's a place where you select what kind of banjo you're into - old time or bluegrass....then there's another box where you can check off additional interests (Mistrel/Classic, fiddle, or guitar). I checked off minstrel...if anyone goes, be sure to check off minstrel. The more people we have indicating an interest, the more likely they are to bring in someone who can teach minstrel styles. I would love to see that on the schedule for 2013.
That'd be great if they offered more 19th century banjo!
We gear our teaching schedule to the wishes of the attendees. So far we've never had more than 2 people indicate an interest in minstrel banjo (usually one or none). Mike Holmes, Director of Banjo Camp North.
