    Calling all Advanced Beginners & Intermediate Fiddle, Banjo, Guitar and Mandolin Players!

    The Log Cabin Band is actively recruiting new members to join us on Thursday nights from 7:30-9:30 PM at a rustic log cabin here in Asheville, North Carolina.

    The Log Cabin Band is a combination of a class, a jam and a band. Led by Wayne Erbsen, every week we learn a new bluegrass or old-time song or tune, and then we play or jam on a dozen or more tunes from our growing repertoire. If you already have your feet wet, but are not quite ready to fly, come check out the Log Cabin Band. This fun group of people will welcome you with open arms.

    The classes are organized in 6-week chunks that continue all year. So far, the group has been going over 12 years. The fee for 6 weeks is $120 or $20 per session. If you come to try it out and it’s not your cup of tea, it’s FREE. Please get in touch with Wayne Erbsen at (828) 299-7031 for more information.
