Workshop: Bill Evans - Banjo
Bill is staying over an extra day in Victoria so he can lead a workshop on the night before his concert. This is a rare chance to learn from a legendary master - player, stylist and teacher - of the banjo. He will teach a 2-hour session for all students at all levels.
This is a hands-on, "bring your banjo and let's pick" event with topics designed for beginning, intermediate and advanced banjo players. Tab examples will be presented in all sessions.
