This year's Seattle Banjo Festival was one of the best.  There were almost 100 banjo players in attendance as well as a great audience for the Sunday matinee performance.  Don VanPalta showed everyone what Eddie Peabody must have been like with his intricate fingering and dynamic scale changes.  The acts were very entertaining with lots of singing and dancing.  While we didn't get too many photos of the actual show, here are a number of shots of the various workshops that were in full swing throughout the weekend.
