Winter Concert Series: Michael Nix

Sunday, January 12, 2020

We are thrilled to announce the return of the library’s Winter Concert Series! Our lineup will once again feature the talented local musicians in a variety of musical styles.

Banjo innovator, Michael Nix designed the Banjar; a modern seven string banjo combining elements of the five-string banjo and classical guitar; bringing the classic finger-style banjo of the late 1800's into the twenty first century. He initiated the New Classic Banjo project to commission, record, and perform new works for the classic finger-style banjo.

Michael Nix performs on classical guitar, banjo, and mandolin throughout the United States and Asia, and he has recorded for the PBS series “American Experience”, independent documentaries, and numerous CD projects. His compositions are performed internationally. His music has been heard on “Weekend Edition”, and other NPR programs. Recently Nix performed his compositions at the Smithsonian Museum of American History, and participated in Seegerfest 2014, commemorating the life of Pete Seeger.

The Winter Concert Series is made possible by the generosity of the Library Building Committee.
