Parkfield Bluegrass Festival
As usual, I'll teach a workshop at The Parkfield Bluegrass Festival 2018. This year I’ll focus on basic bluegrass dobro techniques. Also, I’ll be the "call to the stage" every morning before the show starts.
"Parkfield is a picturesque hamlet secluded on the central coast of California. 25 miles northeast of Paso Robles and surrounded by the best of California's natural beauty. Parkfield's clean air, warm nights, and idyllic setting mesh effortlessly with true American music: bluegrass.
"Every Mother's Day weekend this quiet town's population leaps from a mere 18 to over a thousand bluegrass pickers, pluckers and fun-loving fans. For nearly 2 decades music fans have savored the natural beauty and peaceful ambiance of the Parkfield Bluegrass Festival. Nature's soothing sights and sounds combine with the soulful, high lonesome sound of bluegrass music for an experience that is unique, to say the least."

“The BanjerDan Show” with Special Guest: The Deltaz!
“The Deltaz have worked over a decade to master a wide spectrum of sounds, from heavy blues and psychedelic rock to classic country and folk. Brothers John Siegel and Ted Siegel spend many of their days perfecting new records at a handmade studio adjacent to residence in the hills of Mulholland Highway that overlook Los Angeles. The Deltaz were formed while the brothers were still in high school. The boys had already immersed themselves in the last century of popular music by that point, and this passion led them both to quickly pick up their respective instruments of choice. The two have clearly learned to work with each other, feeding off of each other's talents to bring ever-climactic performances to energized and extremely diverse audiences.”

“The BanjerDan Show” with Special Guest: Mandy Rowden!
Mandy Rowden was born into a fundamentalist Baptist household and raised in East Texas where she was homeschooled throughout her adolescence. She adhered to her parents beliefs while taking up classical violin and piano at a mere six years old. Rowden's parents noticed her natural abilities, and as a result of her insatiable musical wanderlust, or perhaps fearlessness, Rowden rejected her family's notion of what is acceptable and picked up a guitar in high school. With each strum her passion for the instrument grew exponentially; her worldview changed when she unlocked the long forbidden door to rock music at twenty one. She continued to hone her guitar playing chops and, while studying English and Film at what is now Texas State University, Rowden was introduced to Americana music. With Americana she found her "calling" to "quit the classical scene" and seek her voice as a songwriter.
Rowden is a student for life and plays an always-expanding list of instruments that now includes: piano, fiddle, mandolin, bass, harmonica, drums, ukulele, and banjo. She has applied her expertise and passion for music by founding Girl Guitar, a musical workshop and complete "Rock School for women" that involves teaching women of all ages to become confident performers in six-week classes. Ranging from picking up a guitar for the first time to crafting songs, learning drums, and jamming in a Metallica cover band, Girl Guitar's offerings have surpassed Rowden's wildest dreams for the program.
