The workshop will feature all aspects of the modern banjo–no, that’s not a misprint or an oxymoron–including but not limited to: the infinite velocity banjo style and “the ring finger–not just for rings anymore”.
Greg Liszt has been leading an unusual life. Born in Charlottesville, VA, he went to college at Yale and got a Ph.D. from MIT in Molecular Biology. He then immediately retired from science and went on tour playing banjo for Bruce Springsteen. Along the way, Greg developed a new four-fingered banjo picking technique (the other players use three). He currently tours full time in the alt-bluegrass/chambergrass band Crooked Still. He wrote and produced Carry Me To Home.
