You can also catch them live from anywhere in the world via Concert Window on Saturday, Nov 15th, 8 pm Pacific.

The 3rd Annual California Banjo Extravaganza is four concerts and a Banjo Mini-Camp from November 13-16 plus a live webcast .

Tony Furtado is a northern California native who won two National Banjo Championships while still a teenager. He's been called a genius on banjo and slide guitar and his own creative hybrid of Americana and indie rock has won him fans from the bluegrass, acoustic and jam band scenes for over a decade now. Tony returns to an acoustic setting for these concerts, reunited with Jim Nunally and John Reischman, who he performed with here in California in the 1980's and early 1990's.

Mark Johnson is the recipient of the 2012 Steve Martin Award for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. Mark has revolutionized the art of clawhammer banjo by adapting its techniques and rhythms to playing in a bluegrass context. An engaging performer, this is Mark's first northern California tour.
