The Banjo Men of Upstate NY

Banjo Men

Jeff Belding, music instructor for both banjo and guitar, holds banjo classes every Friday morning beginning at 9AM. The sound of tuning banjos and the playing of music is something magical to not only one’s ears but also a connection to the rhythm that connects us all to music and is something that must be experienced. It is incredible to believe that the music you hear is coming from ‘music store’ bought banjos and banjos that were made right here in Ken Evan’s banjo making class. This sweet music is not only being duplicated in music class but  also in Ken’s banjo making class which is held every week right after the music class. All you need to do is sign up and you can learn to build and learn to play and be a part of “The Banjo Men of Upstate NY”. You can follow the progress by stopping back weekly for new photos and updates from Kurt Roullier to this page.
