Oldtime Banjo with Fred Brown

$10.00

Explore the tradition, history, and playing techniques of oldtime banjo with a pro audio production engineer, multi-Instrumentalist (Asthmatic Kitty Records), composer, and founder & owner of Lowly Mountain Banjos.

During this monthly workshop, we will explore the tradition of oldtime banjo by learning one or two tunes, covering the basics of clawhammer and index lead playing styles, and dipping into the history of the banjo as it relates to this fascinating playing style.
