Banjofest rolls back into Guelph

GUELPH – The fourth annual Festival of Eclectic Banjo Music runs March 6 to 8.

After three years of sold-out shows, Banjofest Guelph 2020 is returning for its fourth annual March festival.

The banjofest is dedicated to presenting a broad range of banjo-suffused music and this year is no different, with a stellar line-up of local and international acts.

There will be Bluegrass with The Barrel Boys and Evans, Poulsen and Showman, World Music with So Long Seven (imagine banjo, tabla and violin),  and Old-Time Banjo and Fiddle (and step-dancing) with Newberry and Verc; and Allison Degroot and Tatiana Hargreaves.

All that, plus Metis Fiddle and Banjo (The Red River Ramblers) and even Cabaret (Old Time Honey) and Jug Band (Ever Lovin’ Jug Band).
