We enjoyed an extraordinary 2017 Banjo Gathering this past weekend in Alexandria, Virginia, with a wonderful array of presentations, displays of material culture, and three amazing field trips to the Library of Congress American Folklife Center (AFC), the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History (NMAH).
We were so inspired that we've decided to begin working immediately on planning for our 2018 event, which will be the 20th Anniversary Banjo Gathering. In order to make sure that we create the best possible event for 2018, we are asking people to fill out this short Google-based Banjo Gathering Response Form
I hope you will have a few minutes to complete it. Please let me know what questions or comments you have.
