From 6pm to 8pm at Kenyermezo u. 2/B. Entry is free and everybody is welcome! The first part is a general discussion of wider issues. Then there is an hour or so of singing and discussion of the specific topic in this case … the Banjo and Banjo Songs
The banjo is thought to have originated in Africa and to have come over with slaves to the Carribean and United States, brought to work on the plantations. The music is easily divided into two categories – mountain ballads and dance music/songs. Although the banjo can be used to accompany almost any song we tend to hear it used in Irish and American folk music.
