The Banjo Calamities is a volunteer group comprised mostly of banjo players (with a few guitar players and one fiddle player) who have played a crucial role not only in planning and executing the Weiser Banjo Contest. In addition, the Calamities for three years have been renovating guest and classrooms at Slocum Hall, the headquarters of the National Old Time Fiddle Contest, Inc., so they can be used for musical workshops and camps, lodging of students and instructors and other traditional arts related functions. Here a few photos that show some of the rooms before and after restoration and the Calamities at work restoring this historic building and returning it to its original educational purpose.
