September 16-18 2022
We can now announce with confidence, that the 2022 Banjo Jambo will go ahead. (16th/18th Sept). We will not be up to full strength yet this year, but there will be loads to enjoy! The majority of events will take place on Saturday 17th, with some additional activities on the Friday and Sunday (see Program page). Camping will be available on both Friday and Saturday nights.
Established in 2004 to highlight the banjo, its styles and related instruments. Traditionally the emphasis has been on American string band music (bluegrass, old-time, Appalachian, jug band, Hawaiian and blues) but more recently the program has expanded to encompasses other styles such as Celtic, Klezmer, Jazz and contemporary music.
The heart of the Jamboree is the camaraderie experienced by playing music with old and new friends in various spots around the town and it is that experience that has people returning year after year.
The program includes concerts, workshops, a children’s session, a Gospel singalong, a bush dance, and various sessions around the town.
