American Banjo Camp

ABC 2020 Online Concert

Like so many other events, ABC had to cancel our 2020 camp due to the danger posed by the Covid 19 pandemic. To mark the occasion that ABC would have taken place we will sponsor an online concert featuring our 2020/2021 faculty and share via on Sunday evening, Sept. 13. Prior to the concert we are planning a short "Early-Bird" meet-and-greet and a Q & A session featuring various instructors; anyone who signs up for the concert can participate in the Q&A at no extra charge as well as the Early-Bird Social (half) Hour. Here are the details.

ABC Online Classes

Beginning in mid-September, ABC will sponsor a series of classes conducted by our 2020/2021 Faculty in topics relating to bluegrass banjo, old-time banjo and other instruments featured at ABC, namely bass, guitar, fiddle and mandolin. Classes will be one hour and fifteen minutes in length, and will be broadcast over zoom. There will be opportunities to ask questions and – to some extent - for instructors to monitor student progress individually. Sign up for one class or take in a series. Our schedule of classes (with instructors and projected skill levels) will appear here shortly.

Please feel free to ask any questions about these new programs. We're finding ways to share and teach traditional music despite the limitations of the coronavirus pandemic, and we're happy to share what we've found. Email is welcome 24 hours a day (and may be answered at the strangest hours!) and phone questions are welcome in the afternoons and evenings. See the Contact Us page.
