Banjo Contest


The Florida Folk Festival along with the Florida Banjo Society will host an old-time banjo contest again this year. The competition will be judged by a talented slate of judges. The contest is open to old-time banjo playing styles.  Old-time banjo in this context refers to styles pre-dating bluegrass and excludes four string banjo styles.  Registration begins Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Under the Oaks Stage which is the venue for the contest.  Contestants must hold a valid festival pass and pay a $5 registration fee.  Entrants will play two tunes.
