• The BANJOREE annually offers WORKSHOPS on specific instruments and specific topics, held by selected musicians . In doing so, we strive for diversity and balance and, of course, for quality.



  • Further courses/symposia/activities are prepared, developed and offered by the participants themselves.
  • Each participant can consider whether he/she can and would like to enrich the banjoree with his/her own contributions.

Please let us know your ideas and suggestions AFTER your registration at the Banjoree is confirmed. E-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
