Description

Gather with your fellow banjo pickers as we continue to learn the core techniques of clawhammer banjo with Davey Harrison. All players are welcome to this 2 hour workshop, but participants should have some prior experience or have attended our first Clawhammer class. We will expand beyond the basic “bum-ditty” rhythm with the right hand and focus our sights on learning repertoire from the Old Time canon of fiddle tunes. Feel free to email daveyharrisonmusic@gmail.com with and questions, or email programs@folklorevillage.org if you have technical questions about getting connected with the workshop.

Originally from Gloucester, England, Davey Harrison found his passion for the mandolin and American Roots music while growing up in Wisconsin. His constant love for music led him to study Classical Vocal Performance at Lawrence University’s Conservatory of Music in Appleton, WI. Davey then attended the New England Conservatory in Boston, MA where he received a Master’s of Music in Contemporary Improvisation focusing on mandolin and vocal performance.

Davey now lives near Oconomowoc and performs frequently with his wife and musical partner Maire Clement in their duo the Boston Imposters. Their original music combines the influence of many folk traditions with their own personal stories and perspectives.

Davey teaches mandolin, guitar, claw-hammer banjo, voice, and songwriting.
