Just before the D0rrigo Festival this year banjo pickers can attend a banjo workshop on 25/26 Oct. Ross Nickerson from the USA who is a master player and teacher will be giving a two-day intensive banjo workshop.
Ross will cater to all levels, beginner to advanced. Ross is doing a 5 day banjo workshop in QLD December for $1000 each participant, so a two-day workshop for $150 is very generous and a total bargain. A one hour lesson with any teacher will cost $50, so this is a bargain. Once you have spent two days getting your banjo chops up to speed, you have the Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival immediately after to jam and show off your new skills.
Accommodation is available at the venue for $40 for the thursday night for a bed or $15 camping. There are kitchen facilities so please BYO own food.
