Art Hansen

Art was attracted to folk music at the age of 10. He was intrigued by the sound of the 5-String Banjo. His father bought him his first banjo and he practiced 3 hours a day. Art was fascinated by groups such as, The Kingston Trio and Peter, Paul and Mary. He remembers hearing Earl Scruggs for the first time. He knew he had to learn how to do that! Since that time Art Hansen has played professionally and taught banjo for over 30 yrs.
