Join Davey Harrison during each Friday this February as we explore different approaches to playing the banjo. We will examine Appalachian claw-hammer, bluegrass three-finger-style, and other picking techniques to develop each player’s unique sound on the banjo. In addition to technique, we will also examine singing and instrumental repertoire and the history of this incredible instrument. Players of all ages and levels are welcome! Each of the four classes are 90 minutes and begin at 5pm central time.
About the Instructor
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.
