Cathy Fink, known for her great old-time banjo playing and supportive teaching, won the Clifftop Banjo Contest in 2018. She’ll teach you a driving old-time tune, “Briar Picker Brown,” which brings smiles to players’ faces at the Clifftop jams. It’s in the key of D, using double C tuning. The tune source is Buddy Thomas, whose first instrument was banjo even though he’s known as a fiddler.

With Cathy, it’s not just about the notes, but also the right- and left-hand techniques to make your playing clear, rhythmic, and exciting.
