Arnie Naiman, who sometimes hangs around Mudcat, posted this to Maplepost today and I thought it belonged here. Arnie and Chris are two of the best old-time banjo players in Canada.

Arnie Naiman & Chris Coole
Old Time Banjo Workshop
Saturday April 17 @ 1:00 pm
Ottawa Folklore Centre
1111 Bank Street, Ottawa, Ontario
Tel (613) 730-2887 Toll Free 1-800-385-FOLK
$20 members/$30 non-members

Within the two hours we will cover various banjo topics which may include, Old Time Banjo Music styles, information on the various banjo models available and setup, and information on past and current banjo players and their recordings, Clawhammer style demonstrations of traditional and original tunes/songs, banjo tunings, accompaniment/chords.

We will spend only the first half hour discussing and demoing technique and also touch on some of these aspects of the banjo world. The next half hour and hour after that we will split in at least 2 groups for clawhammer style banjo playing, one for beginner, and one for intermediate/advanced in which we will teach - so bring your banjos and expect to play. This will be a hands on affair - your chance to learn something and take it home with you - guaranteed to affect the rest of your life (in a most positive way of course).
