Here’s another big milestone in the bluegrass world. Pete Wernick, aka Dr. Banjo, is celebrating his 25th anniversary offering his Winter Banjo Camps in Boulder, CO.
Wernick has long been known as a pioneer in bluegrass banjo instruction. His beginner book, Bluegrass Banjo, has sold better than 200,000 copies and his many instructional DVDs are also popular items. He was also a member of Hot Rize, a festival phenomenon in the 1990s who still performs reunion shows. Pete performs these days with Flexigrass, and as a duo with his wife, Joan.
His 25th Anniversary Winter Banjo Camps will be held in January 2010 at The Boulder Inn (Best Western).
