Tony Trischka “sets the world afire with his banjo playing and story telling skills”…..Rolling Stone

He’s one of the giants of the instrument. But then you already knew that.

Because you have an interest in banjos either as a business, being part of a community, as a player/listener or all of the above, we felt you might want to know about the virtual concert and Question and Answer session that Valley Stage Productions (www.valleystage.net) recently produced with Tony. It will air on the Mandolin.com streaming platform on Saturday, Dec. 11 beginning at 7:00 p.m. EST.

This performance took place over 2 days in the beautiful and acoustically resonant Richmond Congregational Church in Richmond, VT.

“Visually and aurally it was fantastic. That stained glass aura and those warm acoustics optimized my playing”. ….Tony

What resulted is a presentation of Tony playing music of all sorts, telling stories about his past, his banjos and the history of the instrument itself.

Tony will appear live at the beginning of the streaming event and in select spots throughout the program relating stories and anecdotes. He will also participate in a live chat room alongside during the recording. He’ll conclude the concert before ushering those who would like to continue this experience into the VIP Room for a Question and Answer period which is limited to 30 participants.

Here’s a sample of what you’ll hear and see during Tony’s performance.

It will stream on the Mandolin.com website beginning at 7:00 p.m. EST.

The Q&A session will follow.

Options for tickets are available at:

The concert will be available for a 48 hour time period following the concert.

Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions. We hope you can join us in what we believe you will find to be a memorable experience.

We’d appreciate your letting us know if you decided to tune in. Please spread the word to others who you feel might enjoy the performance.

Valley Stage Productions, LLC provides production services for live music events in a number of venues throughout Chittenden County and Northern New England.

But for ten years (2006-2015) the Valley Stage Music Festival was home to a once-a-year celebration of music, food and local vendors with national touring artists as well as regional and local musicians. All of this took place in the beautiful and bucolic foothills of Vermont’s second highest peak, Camel’s Hump.

MOST RECENTLY…Valley Stage Productions announces its 7th season of Sunday afternoon concerts; “P.M. Sundays” taking place at the Richmond Congregational Church in Richmond, VT. Each concert will have a 4:00 p.m. start time. We feel it’s a great way to finish up your weekend and for those who look at Sunday as the first day of the week, an even better way to start it off.

This unique series of 8 performances includes both American and foreign acts from Canada, Sweden, Ireland, etc. Some classic performers and some great up and coming acts that will be seen for the first time on this stage.
