Clarinbridge Banjo Gathering, 12-14 Apr. 2013

Chris Keenan of the EBMA board reports on a new banjo event in Co. Galway, Ireland:

The first annual Clarinbridge Banjo Gathering weekend was a resounding success, featuring a stunning sold-out performance of 'From Senegal to Seeger' by American banjo player Michael J. Miles [photo] - in addition to workshops, a vintage banjo exhibition, musical performance at church service, and a weekend of sessions and jams. Clarinbridge is home to Ireland's premier banjo luthier, Tom Cussen of Clareen Banjos.

Full details of the weekend (12-14 April) are on the Clareen Banjos website.
