Our own John Lawless will be teaching a banjo workshop in Raleigh, NC on March 24. It is hosted by Banjo In The Hollow, and will be held at the Community United Church of Christ from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The workshop is limited to 25 students, and John plans to cover a wide range of material.
John and I work together a couple of days a week, and though we are always working on music-related projects, we don’t usually interact musically. We never get to pick together, and I guess I forget sometimes that he can play the banjo – though he only admits to being “passing fair.”
There are audio samples of John’s CD, Five & Dime, on his web site, and in the iTunes Music Store. Ditto for his work with Acoustic Endeavors.
He also spent most of his career prior to establishing AcuTab Publications in 1994 as a banjo teacher, carrying as many as 30-40 students each week. He has started to accept private students again, on a limited basis, in Roanoke, VA.
John says that he hopes to do more workshops like this, now that he has a bit more time to dedicate to teaching, and asks that anyone with an interest in reaching him about that to contact him through his banjo lessons page on the AcuTab web site.
