Colin Bazsali

banjo, guitar, mandolin

Colin Bazsali started playing the banjo some 15 years ago after hearing recordings of Pete Seeger and Dock Boggs. Not content to play in one style or one instrument for more than 3 minutes at a time, he usually can be seen retuning a banjo or reaching for a mandolin, guitar, or harmonica if he isn’t already playing one. He also plays guitar and sometimes drums in the Cajun Strangers.
