PineCone hosts regular workshops for amateur musicians. These on-going online and in-person workshops offer emerging musicians the chance to sit knee to knee with brilliant musicians and teachers. The ultimate goal of these gatherings is to inspire more people to play this music we love.

One of the first in-person workshops after COVID restrictions started to ease was lead by fiddler Tatiana Hargreaves and banjo player Joseph Decosimo. This workshop was focused on the classic fiddle/banjo duo that is central to the old time sound in the Piedmont of North Carolina.

We started offering these workshops online during COVID-19 to encourage people of all skill levels to play music at home.
