The New American Banjo Festival will take place on April 23, 2022. The Festival Concert will be held live at the Shea Theater Arts Center in Turners Falls, MA, and streamed virtually on Eventbrite simultaneously. The New American Banjo Festival will explore interesting and unique performance styles old and new, and has a historical and cultural component, focusing on the banjo in New England and beyond. This year’s focus is on Classic Finger Style Banjo. There will be an admission fee for the live concert. The livestream is free, but donations will be greatly appreciated.

Performers for the New American Banjo Festival are Aaron Jonah Lewis, a classic finger style virtuoso from Detroit performing music from the ragtime and golden classic banjo eras; and Michael Nix with Chris Devine and Joe Fitzpatrick performing new compositions and arrangements from his New Classic Banjo Project.

NixWorks and Allyance Productions (CouchMusic.Live) will facilitate the streaming performances.
