Yee Haw! Learn How to Play the Banjo at MHCC

Posted: January 8, 2013

A new, non-credit class at Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) will focus on “learning to play banjo the Earl Scruggs way,” the three-finger picking style named for the American music icon. Beginning Banjo will be held Thursdays, Jan. 17 - March 7, 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. on the Gresham Campus, 26000 S.E. Stark Street.

Taught by Lewton Jones, a professional musician for more than 30 years, this class promises to be a fun and relaxed way to learn to play the banjo. Jones also plays the mandolin, guitar and ukulele.
