Guildford Jamboree Video

by | 25 Sep, 2012

Here is a YouTube video sent to us from this year’s 2012 Guildford Jamboree in Victoria.

The Guildford Banjo Jamboree sees an eclectic gathering of musicians and music lovers in the small country town of Guildford, in Central Victoria, Australia. It was conceived in 2004 to showcase the banjo in its many forms and related styles. The emphasis has been on American string-band music (Bluegrass, Old-timey, Appalachian, Jugband, Hawaiian and Blues) but the programme also encompasses other styles such as Celtic, Klezmer, Jazz and contemporary music.
