Out of the Blue Live Stream Series with Eli Gilbert & Grace Gilbert

Thursday - October, 22 @ 7:00pm

Watch the Live Stream LIVE on our Facebook Page!

Eli and Grace are a brother and sister duo from Yarmouth, ME. Eli started playing banjo in 2012, and graduated with a B.A. in Bluegrass from East Tennessee State University in 2016. Since then, Eli has performed at venues and festivals across the US with artists like Dale Ann Bradley, Chris Jones and the Night Drivers,  and Alan Bibey.

Eli spends almost all of his time making free banjo lessons on Youtube, which can be found here:

Eli is lucky to be able to make a living making these free lessons because of the generous people who support him on Patreon, where patrons get access to bonus banjo content, like Tablature and Bonus Practice Tips, which can be found here:
