Last Swanannoa Gathering of the season this Week

August 2 - 8, 2015   Swanannoa Gathering - Mando & Banjo Week and Fiddle Week   Mando & Banjo Week features classes in two of the instruments that are at the core of several of the most popular folk genres, including bluegrass, old-time, Irish and Scottish, as well as some of the more adventurous blendings of traditional and jazz flavors known variously as ‘newgrass’ or ‘new acoustic’ music. 

Mando & Banjo Week has been paired with Fiddle Week, offering classes in similar styles, to encourage students from both programs to jam with each other, and with guitar classes in both programs to provide rhythm players, the possibilities for impromptu bands and jam sessions.
