Aaron Jonah Lewis is an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, performer and educator. Aaron is passionate about sharing early fingerstyle banjo music (AKA “classic banjo”). He points out that classic banjo was the most popular form of music a hundred years ago, and today it’s almost entirely forgotten.
Aaron’s newest recording, entitled Mozart of the Banjo: The Joe Morley Project, is devoted to the compositions of Joe Morley, the great prodigy and virtuoso composer of the turn of the 20th century.
Aaron has performed at major festivals from the US to the UK and from Italy to Finland and continues to tour extensively. His most recent trips to Edinburgh have been with the highly acclaimed old time trio The Corn Potato String Band.
This gig is part of Edinburgh Tradfest 2022.
