The 22nd Annual Banjo Gathering is hosted by Arts@ODU on the campus of Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia from Thursday, October 24 to Sunday, October 27. 

Since 1998, the Banjo Gathering has been the platform for banjo collectors, scholars, instrument builders, and musicians to share new findings about the banjo as a historical, cultural, and design object.

Set against the backdrop of Norfolk's 400-year role as a key port city, this year's themes, Banjos Across the Water and Inspirations for Contemporary Banjos, explore how banjo history is shaped by travel, commerce and industry across the world's waterways, and how contemporary makers use historical banjos as well as domestic and international art and design as inspiration for their instruments.

ODU and Hampton University personnel may reserve free tickets to presentations, and others may register through the banjogathering.com website.
