Travelling Banjo Academy
with Bob Carlin, Dan Levenson & Cathy Fink

Bob Carlin is probably the best-known clawhammer banjoist performing today. For over thirty years he has performed, lectured, and taught the distinctive southern banjo style to appreciative audiences all over the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Bob is a three-time winner of the Frets Magazine readers' poll, and has to his credit four Rounder albums and several instruction manuals and videos for the banjo.

Dan Levenson is considered one of the finest teachers today of the Clawhammer banjo style. He is the author of the revolutionary new clawhammer instruction manual Clawhammer Banjo From Scratch - a Mel Bay publication. He is known worldwide as the banjo player from his time with The Boiled Buzzards and now plays fiddle in The Hippie-billies.

Cathy Fink has played the banjo since 1974. She has absorbed many styles of playing from banjo masters and recordings and developed a clawhammer style that has drive, percussion, melody, and chordal components. In 1980 she became the first woman to win the West Virginia State Old Time Banjo contest, an honor she earned 3 times. She has taught at music camps such as Augusta, Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and Swannanoa. Her CD, Banjo Haiku has been an underground hit of clawhammer playing.

Bob Carlin will also be performing with Cheick Hamala Diabate on the concert
