Quotes: "What Trischka presented was two hours of gripping and gorgeous music." Chicago Tribune
"Urban bluegrass whiz." Time magazine
"..world renown... music's most adventurous banjoist." Village Voice

Armed with a barrage of banjos - and a masterful mix of bluegrass, popular, classical, originals and sing-alongs - Tony presents an entertaining overview of the roots and branches of the banjo. Each performance is dappled with Tony's unique wit and warmth and humorous readings.

Opening for Tony will be Arnie Solomon, Glen Alexander & Friends, well-known local musicians. Some of the group will join Tony for portions of his concert, in what promises to be some seriously fine music.
