Graham Sones (Waverly, MN) is a more than forty-year veteran of the banjo, a Scruggs-style picker who enjoys his craft and helping students learn to play. Born in Rochester, MN with strong family ties in Des Moines and the Arkansas hills, he grew up with bluegrass music and festivals. His picking, singing, and recording experience includes three years with Monroe Crossing all over the Midwest at festivals, concerts, and fairs, as well as with bands such as DriveTime and No Grass Limit, and currently the Tony Rook Band.

“Graham has great teaching skills. He keeps it fun.”
“Graham was very solicitous of our needs and very willing to accommodate everyone.”
“I’ve learned from many teachers, and Graham is among the best. He is patient, forgiving, and inspiring which makes it easy to learn and fun.”
“Graham was absolutely fantastic. As a nervous beginner, there was a great balance of advice, musts, must nots in a very accepting environment. It was really fun. I left very comfortable and knowing so much more than when I entered.”
“I give Graham high marks for patience. I’m happy to recommend him to anyone interested in learning from a real expert.”
“The instructor was great! I wanted to learn more in a hands on way. This class was just what I wanted.”
