Banjos ringing in Punta Gorda
Attached is an information flyer
designed for those musicians who wish to attend the 2014 Punta Gorda Banjo Bash, as a
player or participant. The basic banjo theme for the Bash will be expanded to
include Bluegrass, Dixieland and Jazz ensembles, provided banjos are used
as a “main ingredient”.
The dates for the event are February 14 -
15, 2014. We have again contracted the Charlotte Harbor Event Center
for performances and have also contracted the beautiful Four Points
by Sheraton Hotel, located directly across the road from the event center.
The event will be managed by the Young
Musicians Education Foundation Inc. The YMEF is a local 501(C)3
corporation with a dedicated mission to help youngsters that can't afford music
lessons and/or instruments. All donations are completely tax deductible and
corporate sponsors are always welcomed. Confirmed headliners are Tim Allan,
Johnny Baier, the Myakka River Bluegrass Band, The Southwind Bluegrass
Band and the All American Banjo Team. We will be contracting many more
individuals and groups.
All registered participants, will enjoy
free workshops, admission to all shows, venues and jam sessions. Please visit
our web-site at www.banjomusic.org
to obtain detailed information.
It should be
mentioned that foundation personnel or volunteers are not compensated
for their time or their expenses. As such, all profits will go to the children
and maintenance of the foundation. Thank you!
