The group is also offering a claw hammer banjo clinic to be held the same day as the concert at 12 pm. In keeping with Creative 360’s mission, the clinic is open to all ages and abilities is for anyone interested in learning more about the Clawhammer Banjo.
“This is going to be awesome,” said Bunch, a longtime fan of the group and Creative 360 board member, “you do not want to be left out in the cold, because they are hot!”
