Hilarie Burhans has been playing and teaching clawhammer banjo for more than 40 years. They love teaching banjo, and especially love working with beginners and with folks trying to make the transition to learning tunes from recordings or “on the fly” at jams rather than note-by-note from an instructor or from tablature. They’re the co-founder of the nationally-touring Hotpoint Stringband, with whom they have recorded five albums, and they’ve collaborated on too many other musical projects to count. Almost 5,000 subscribers enjoy their YouTube banjo teaching channel, and a track from their solo CD was featured on an episode of the acclaimed HBO series Deadwood. They won the Ohio State Banjo Contest nine times, and are very proud to have placed in the contests at the Appalachian Stringband Festival a number of times (3rd in Banjo, and 1st in both the Traditional Band and NeoTraditional Band contests).
