6. August 28th – 31st Banjo Rally since 1975
Banjo Rally International is an annual gathering opportunity for players of all acoustic instruments. We focus on players of 4-string plectrum and tenor banjos, but all acoustic instrument musicians are welcome to attend and perform, including players of 5-string banjo, ukulele, mandolin, guitar, piano, tuba, string bass, stumpf fiddle, washboard and even a few front-line horns (clarinet, trombone and trumpet – usually played by those who also play banjo or other string instruments).
The skill level of players ranges from beginner to seasoned professional. Participants range in age from 10 to 95 years of age.
