Event Description

We are hosting an Early American Banjo gathering. The committee for this event are John and Elaine Masciale, Tim Twiss, Al Smitley, and Andy Chase.

At the end of the last gathering there was a lot of interest in continuing with the gathering, but we needed a new venue.  After a lot of searching we are pleased to announce that Renfrew Museum is willing to host us.

Our goals are:

!. To educate about and create an appreciation for the early American banjo, its musical repertoire, and its role in American history.

2. To develop and foster fellowship and camaraderie among players who are often isolated geographically. This fellowship creates increased opportunity for conversation and mentorship.

3. To welcome and mentor new players.

4. To be a resource for players for sources of music, instruments, and accessories.

5. To provide a cost-effective, impactful opportunity for players of early American banjo.

6. To have fun. Lots of fun.

Based on this event we hope to plan future events.

Come join us!

Got this on my calendar now. Obviously everything is TBD for me at the moment, but at least I know about it and have it down. Thanks for organizing.

I'm so glad to hear Kristina has put her research into book form! Her and Pete's discoveries and presentations at the Banjo Collector's Gatherings over the past few years have been amazing and exciting. If she has copies there, I'm beggin' for an autograph...
