Banjo Summit features: Grammy winner Béla Fleck (New Grass Revival, Béla Fleck and the Flecktones); NJ resident Tony Trischka (a regular on A Prairie Home Companion, taught Béla Fleck, has produced Steve Martin); Bill Keith (Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys, the inventor of "Keith Tuning Pegs"); Eric Weissberg (scored a #2 hit record with "Dueling Banjos," the theme from the movie Deliverance); Richie Stearns (Donna the Buffalo, The Horse Flies); Noam Pikelny (Leftover Salmon, The Punch Brothers); and Pete Wernick (Hot Rize, Country Cooking, the first President of the International Bluegrass Music Association).
