Tony Trischka, the man who made the banjo bigger, jazzier and more worldly brings his banjo to Unison!
Some musicians open up whole new realms. In the world of the banjo, the music that marked the change came from Tony Trischka. Up out of bluegrass and country and then all over. To roots in Africa. To heights of jazz. Banjo, unbound. Tony Trischka set it free while also becoming known as the instruments greatest educator about his instrument and its history. Embracing all manner of possibilities, while keeping one foot firmly planted in the traditional bluegrass roots that first inspired him to make music, Tony will be playing at Unison on Friday, Oct 12 at 8PM
“…the great banjo liberationist..”
