The 15th Annual Banjo Special
February 8, 2015 @ 8:30 pm$20 – $22.50
The 15 Annual Banjo Special, featuring Brian Taheny, Chris Coole, Arnie Naiman and Chris Quinn, brings together four of Canada’s best and most experienced players and takes the listener on a journey that follows the path the banjo has taken since the early 1800s. From it’s roots as an African gourd instrument, into America and the early minstrel shows, old-time country music, rural blues, bluegrass and all the way to Ireland. This annual concert does more to scratch the banjo itch than anything else that happens all year in this city, featuring a dazzling line up of special guests.
