The workshop will feature all aspects of the modern banjo--no, that's not a misprint or an oxymoron--including but not limited to: the infinite velocity banjo style and "the ring finger--not just for rings anymore".
Greg LisztGreg Liszt has been leading an unusual life. Born in Charlottesville, VA, he went to college at Yale and got a Ph.D. from MIT in Molecular Biology. He then immediately retired from science and went on tour playing banjo for Bruce Springsteen. Along the way, Greg developed a new four-fingered banjo picking technique (the other players use three). He currently tours full time in the alt-bluegrass/chambergrass band Crooked Still. He wrote and produced Carry Me To Home.
