Banjo Roots and Branches

October 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Banjo historian George Gibson, who has studied the instrument for decades and owns a dozen historical banjos, will demonstrate their use. He will also discuss how the Kentucky style of banjo playing arrived from Africa, the role the gourd banjo played in Arkansas music history, and how the banjo was played in the Carolinas as early as the 1700s. He will sign a new book that includes his essay on the banjo’s history. Registration is $5 per person. Go online or call the Center for Cultural Preservation to register.
