We just received a new book: Banjo Camp!: Learning, Picking & Jamming with Bluegrass Old-Time Greats, by Zhenya Gene Senyak is an armchair adventure for banjo players. Not only is the John C. Campbell Folk School highlighted as one of the camps to attend, but it includes quotes from Folk School Director, Jan Davidson and banjo instructor J.D. Robinson. More than a guide to the premier banjo-learning venues, though, the book is filled with details about workshops, festivals, campfire conversations with musicians and profiles of some of the greatest pickers around. As a bonus, the book includes an audio CD instruction and jam session! It is available for $21.95 in the Craft Shop.
