NSMA’s 27th Annual Bluegrass Masters Weekend offers three days of jamming, a day of workshops, and an evening concert.
This year’s featured artist is banjoist KRISTIN SCOTT BENSON. One of the top players on the bluegrass scene today, Kristin is a gifted artist and teacher with a keen interest in the banjo as a lyrical instrument. She’s a four-time International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) “Banjo Player of the Year” and has been a member of GRAMMY-nominated and two-time IBMA winners THE GRASCALS since 2008.
Larry Nager of Bluegrass Unlimited writes, “There was one grass ceiling no woman could cut through–until Kristin Scott Benson came along… Until then, no woman had ever been hired to play one of the most defining of the bluegrass instruments in an A-list, festival-headlining, all-male band… Kristin takes the banjo where no woman has taken it before.”
Kristin’s BANJO WORKSHOPS are open to learners of all levels, 9 am to 5 pm, Sat. November 4 (registration at event only, no participant max).
The SATURDAY NIGHT CONCERT (tickets for sale at event only, $20/$10) features the Kristin Scott Benson Trio (Kristin on banjo; Danny Roberts, mandolin; Chris Jones, guitar and lead vocals).
