About this Event

TONY TRISCHKA

Tony is considered to be the consummate banjo artist and perhaps the most influential banjo player in the roots music world. For more than 45 years, his stylings have inspired a whole generation of bluegrass and acoustic musicians with the many voices he has brought to the instrument.

Some musicians open up whole new realms. In the world of the banjo, the music that marked the change came from Tony Trischka. Up out of bluegrass and country and then all over. To roots in Africa. To the heights of Jazz. Banjo, unbound. Tony Trischka set it free. His innovations have inspired players like Bela Fleck, Noam Pikelny and a myriad of others, helping to define the dynamic banjo stylings of today. Bela recalls, “Tony used to say he played off his feelings, and I never knew exactly what he meant by that back then, but maybe I didn’t have to. I could listen and feel things myself which is the goal of great music, come to think about it.”

Tony is not only considered amongst the most innovative of banjo players, he is one of its most respected and sought after instructors creating 15 instructional books as well as a series of DVDs.

As a part of his appearance at the Double E Tony will be conducting a workshop for banjo players earlier that afternoon prior to the concert. A separate ticket is necessary! You can get those HERE
