Workshop with Riley Baugus

Ducks On The Millpond is often regarded as one of the “beginner tunes”, however there is just loads of music in this tune. I love playing it and find it really intriguing. We’ll use this one tune to cover the essential techniques in clawhammer banjo playing. This is the workshop for you if you want to know about getting a solid base for playing in the Round Peak style.

Riley first discovered traditional music through his family and an early exposure to church and ballad singing. He is now a much sought-after banjo player, maker, and instructor. Riley was the a cappella singing voice of Pangle in the film “Cold Mountain,” followed by participation in the Great High Mountain tour. He has performed or recorded with the likes of Tim O’Brien, Dirk Powell, Alison Krauss, and Willie Nelson, and he teaches workshops both nationally and abroad.
