Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – The Music Column with William Price King – Buddy Wachter – Banjo

Welcome to another post by William Price King in the A – Z of Jazz Instrumentalists and we move on to the Banjo. Another instrument that is perhaps more associated with Blue Grass, Folk and Country music than jazz. This week one of the most respected banjo players across the genres, including classical music.

Buddy Wachter – Jazz Banjoist

Buddy Wachter is widely regarded as the most influential four-string banjo player of our time.

Performing and lecturing internationally as a musical ambassador for the U.S. Department of State since 1990, he has played more than 7000 concerts to audiences in 130 countries. This has done much to unite the world banjo community and has introduced the instrument to some of the remotest parts of the globe. He has also appeared as guest soloist with more than a hundred symphony orchestras, worldwide.

Buddy Wachter is that rarest of rare musicians who has been able to catapult the lowly banjo to a level of virtuosity and musicality never before associated with the instrument.” Skitch Henderson, Conductor – New York Pops

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
