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.

WOW!!! That is so neat to see how the fusion of styles work together so well. And flat-footing in 5/4 (couldn't help it listening) is a breeze at that tempo. Keeping to 5/4 on a banjo must be very challenging. Just .... WOW. W.O.W. So inspiring!
