Welcome to the new Banjo Studio podcast. For our inaugural show, host Jonathan Freilich talks with modern banjo virtuoso Ryan Cavanaugh about his journey to becoming one of the most innovative banjoists in history.
Ryan Cavanaugh is one of the most innovative banjoists ever. His 3 finger single string technique on the 5 string banjo allows him to play lines like a jazz guitarist. One of his biggest influences is the jazz guitarist John McLaughlin. Host Jonathan Freilich talks with Ryan on his journey from traditional banjo styles to playing modern jazz.
