Adam Hurt Intermediate Clawhammer Workshop

Wednesday, January 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Join Adam for a look at “Jack Wilson,” a wonderful tune from historical Kentucky fiddler John Salyer. Besides being a great tune for any banjo player’s repertoire, it also teaches some useful lessons about the layout of the double-C/double-D tuning that can be applied to participants’ other repertoire in these tunings. Please bring your fretted steel-strung banjo, a capo if you use one to access the higher keys, and a recording device. Facility with the basics of the clawhammer style including drop-thumbing is essential for success in this workshop.

Deemed a “banjo virtuoso” by the Washington Post, Adam Hurt has fused several traditional old-time idioms to create his own elegantly innovative clawhammer banjo style, having been introduced to the instrument at age eleven in his native Minnesota. A respected performer and teacher of traditional music, Adam has played at the Kennedy Center, conducted banjo and fiddle workshops at many venues around the country and abroad, and been featured on the cover of Banjo Newsletter. Since moving south in 2002, Adam has placed in or won most of the major old-time banjo competitions, including three first-place finishes at Clifftop, and he has claimed several state banjo and fiddle championships.
