Banjo Virtuoso Tony Trischka Coming to The Cock ‘n Bull August 10th

Banjo virtuoso, songwriter, and educator, Tony Trischka, is slated to perform at The Cock ‘n Bull in Galway, New York on Saturday, August 10th.

The folk musician has been named one of the most influential figures in American Roots music by NPR, and has been celebrated as a “banjo liberationist,” raising the profile of banjo playing again in American music. Through his theme song for Books on the Air and performances on A Prairie Home Companion, Mountain Stage, From Our Front Porch and other programs, he’s been a frequent presence on NPR. His work with his pal Steve Martin has helped the banjo gain a wider audience and deeper understanding.

Trischka is also well known for having many elite students, including Bela Fleck.

Quoted as stating, “I was just doing something I loved,” Trischka shows no sign of stopping any time soon. He has a scheduled stop at the Grand Ole Opry on August 24th. But Capital region residents can see Trischka closer to home in Galway August 10th at 7 pm.

Advance ticket purchase is recommended. Patrons interested in dining at The Cock ‘n Bull Restaurant prior to the show are encouraged to make reservations at (518) 882-6962.
