Virtuoso banjo player and fiddler Aaron Jonah Lewis has been elbow-deep in traditional American music since their first lessons at the age of five with Kentucky native Robert Oppelt. Their concerts take audiences on a journey through the back roads of American old time and folk music, with detours through ragtime and early jazz. Lewis has taken blue ribbons at the Appalachian String Band Festival in Clifftop, WV, and at the Old Fiddlers Convention in Galax, VA, the oldest and largest fiddlers convention in the country. They spend most of their time teaching, touring as a solo performer, with the Corn Potato String Band, the Lovestruck Balladeers, and other projects. Tickets are available now at elderly.com/events

This clawhammer banjo clinic has something to offer everyone from the total beginner to the advanced player. Aaron Jonah Lewis will focus on the fundamentals of frailling, especially right hand technique with an emphasis on rhythm and feel. We will certainly learn a useful new tune or two and will cover the use of drop-thumb, hammer-ons and pull-offs as well. We will also discuss the role of the banjo in a jam setting as well as how to play along to a tune you’ve never heard before. As time and interest allow we will also explore a number of different tunings.
