Michael Nix: Album Release Concert with Chris Devine


About This Event

Michael Nix releases his New Classic Banjo Project solo album of compositions and commissions for 7 string Banjar on PARMA Recordings Big Round Records distributed by NAXOS. Nix’s crossover banjo style draws on classical, jazz, folk, and international music. Aperçu delivers a remarkable collection of music in which composer and banjo innovator Michael Nix challenges listeners to reimagine the banjo as a solo concert instrument. Brought to life by Nix’s 7-string Banjar, the album incorporates various folk, international, and classical styles to forge a newfangled genre: New Classical Banjo.
Banjo innovator Michael Nix designed the Banjar; a modern seven nylon string banjo combining elements of the
five-string banjo and classical guitar; bringing the classic finger-style banjo of the late 1800s into the twenty first
century. His instrumentals, songs, and compositions draw from classic finger style banjo and guitar, infused with
folk, jazz and world music traditions.
Michael Nix performs on classical guitar, Banjar, banjo, and mandolin, throughout the United States and Asia; has
recorded for the PBS series, American Experience, several independent documentaries, numerous CD projects;
and his compositions are performed internationally. His music has been heard on Weekend Edition and other
NPR programs.
