Peghead Nation banjo instructor Bill Evans brought the seventh annual California Banjo Extravaganza to the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley recently, with his guests, the old-time musician and songwriter Chris Coole and IBMA’s 2018 Banjo Player of the Year, Ned Luberecki.

Each year, Bill and his banjo compatriots are joined by the Extravaganza's all-star band, which includes Peghead Nation instructors Chad Manning, Sharon Gilchrist, and John Reischman, along with guitar master Jim Nunally.

In this video, the entire Extravaganza plays the bluegrass jam favorite “Angeline the Baker.” Everyone sounds great, and Chad is on fire on his new fiddle!
