For enthusiasts of early banjo
The Antietam Early Banjo Gathering is an annual event at the Pry House Barn on the Antietam Battlefield.
The next dates for this event are June 19-21, 2015.

I didn't get an email from Greg this year and I completely forgot to check when this was. Hopefully something happens again next year (and that I have enough forethought to check here for info). I really enjoyed this a couple of years ago when I was there.
I'm sorry you didn't get to attend AEBG this year Kevin. I don't know what other events people are doing, but I'm going to be teaching at Augusta Heritage Center's Old-Time Week and Dance Week. Perhaps some folks here would consider attending as well: https://augustaheritagecenter.org/augusta-schedule/old-time/old-tim...
I just found this old thread. As a newcomer to Minstrel Banjo I was not aware of the demise of this gathering. This was another of those things that was on my todo list once I got around to retiring.
Has anything further happened to try and restart this?
I hope that the Sweeny/Appomattox gathering is still on for 2016. Last year's event was loaded with funn and good learning! Mark Weems did a splendid job putting it together.
Never fear Scott, we will definitely be planning a Sweeney Convergence at Appomattox again in 2016. We need it more now than ever since the Antietam Banjo Gathering is in hiatus.
Mark, do you have a date, yet? If so, I might try to influence my vintage base ball club's scheduling.
I was just watching a CSPAN3 program that I DVRed last August (2019) about the Battle of Antietam. The program/lecture was filmed in the Pry Barn and brought back memories.
Hello to you, Strum. If AEBG has a rebirth, hope to see you there.
I'm pretty sure that the CSPAN3 program about the Battle of Antietam in which the program was filmed in the Pry Barn airs again this Sunday at 10 am. I say "I'm pretty sure" because I can't recall whether the presenter's name is the same.
