Tony Trischka
Tony Trischka is a banjo virtuoso, songwriter and educator, originally from Syracuse, N.Y., where he was raised in a home filled with music. Trischka fell in love with the banjo by way of the Kingston Trios recording of M.T.A. He moved to NYC and joined the evolving folk revival of the early to mid-60s. Tony settled in among a peer group of extraordinary musicians who saw American roots music as a thriving, living language that could be expanded and combined with other influences and sensibilities.

In addition to his Grammy nominations, Trischka has earned a number of honors over the years, including the International Bluegrass Music Award for Banjo Player of the Year in 2007, and he was named a United States Artists Friends Fellow in 2012.
