You don’t have to listen too intently around Asheville to catch the twang of a banjo — especially during the weekend of the North Carolina Banjo Clinic. This annual two-day workshop offers instruction for all levels, from the novice who’s never plucked a string to advanced pickers looking to refine their style. This year’s clinic offers more than ever, including extra collaborative jam classes, banjo maintenance courses and private lessons with the direction and instructor decided by the student. The clinic is led by seasoned banjo masters like Bobby Anderson, who’s been playing for 55 years and teaching for 35. Banjo enthusiasts will gather at Crosspoint Church in Montford on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 11 and 12, beginning at 8:30 a.m. $295/$175 daily. vpmusic.org. Photo by Rod Johnston
