Banjo Concert with Mary Z Cox Join us for an evening of banjos, songs, and fun. The leaves are spectacular in Cashiers this time of year-- if your in Carolina--please join us. There will be songs of love, heartbreak, West Virginia tunes, North Carolina tunes--and did I mention--there will be banjo ? :)
See & hear special banjos from the private collection of two time Florida banjo champion & recording artist, Mary Z. Cox when she brings her Banjo Sampler to the Earl Scruggs Center on Friday, July 11 from 7-8 pm. Hear a cello banjo, John Bowlin 1865 fretless banjo, gourd banjo, cigar box banjo, John Hartford banjo, mermaid banjo & maybe a surprise banjo. Learn a little banjo history and hear some early and modern old time frailing and claw hammer banjo. MaryZ won 1st place in the old time banjo contest in Brevard, NC last October playing Snowdrop in 35 degree weather outdoors , but you’ll get to hear it indoors. Hope you join us for this special evening of music and fun—and—THERE WILL BE BANJOS ! http://earlscruggscenter.org/event/an-evening-with-mary-z-cox-and-her-banjo-sampler/
