Carbone’s Music Fest w/ The South Cedar String Band

I’m excited to celebrate my awesome south Minneapolis neighborhood and community by playing on the patio of my favorite local family restaurant, Carbone’s, for their 2022 Music Fest event that is taking place August 5-6.

I’ve put a little pick-up band together for this show that I’m calling the South Cedar String Band that features myself on banjo, my bandmate Eric Christopher on the fiddle and mandolin and the super talented Shane Akers on the Dobro.

We’re playing on Sat. Aug. 6th from 5-7PM and you can expect some original and traditional bluegrass, fun covers, tight harmonies and plenty of hot pickin’! More infro below:

Banjo Instruction

Banjo Workshop at Blue Ox Music Festival

I’m thrilled to announce that I will once again be teaching a bluegrass banjo workshop at Blue Ox Music Festival, Friday June 24th at 9am!

My goal when teaching short group banjo lessons like this is to give players a dose of inspiration as well as a handful of actionable takeaways that they can use at jams the same day.

Perhaps most importantly, I want to facilitate the opportunity for players to meet and learn with other players! I feel this is an important aspect learning any instrument instrument, here is why I think group learning is so cool ๐Ÿช•๐Ÿช•๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
