TRACY WEINBERG, Musician and Artist*

Tracy Weinberg exemplifies musical variety and eclecticism. With his unique singing style and accompaniment on the dojo (dobro-banjo), he creates a fresh acoustic sound that is both old-timey and modern. You will hear elements of blues, swing, folk, and more. Add in clever, thoughtful lyrics with a twist of humor, and his music is sure to please your musical palette. He performs solo and with his band, Tracy Weinberg and Friends.

Growing up in the Chicago area, Tracy heard live music ranging from the Chicago Symphony to Ravi Shankar to Hound Dog Taylor. He began playing banjo at age 16 because "everyone else played guitar" and these experiences led him to play non-traditional music on the banjo. His musical influences are wide-ranging, and include such diverse performers as Louis Armstrong, Leon Redbone, Tom Waits, and Bela Fleck.
