Each November, SF Bay Area banjo player Bill Evans brings together some of the best banjo players in the world and combines them with an ace backup band featuring several West Coast favorites for a series of incredible concerts across northern California and an afternoon of workshops in Berkeley. This year’s annual northern California five-string banjo celebration features 2015 IBMA Banjo Player of the Year Charlie Cushman, North Carolina old-time banjo master Bob Carlin and, of course, California favorite Bill Evans. Joining this trio of banjo greats is their All-Star band, this year featuring 2017 IBMA Songwriter of the Year Tim Stafford (guitar) from the award-winning bluegrass band Blue Highway, John Reischman (mandolin), Chad Manning (fiddle), & Sharon Gilchrist (bass & mandolin) for an evening of bluegrass, old-time, and beyond, focusing on the many different ways music can be made on the five-string banjo.
