Classically trained musician John Bullard reimagines the banjo in what he calls “the perfect southern art” – classical banjo featured in works by the likes of Bach, Handel, Schumann and Grieg. “Absolutely enchanting,” writes critic Graham Rickson of the UK-based The Arts Desk.

The first graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Music to earn a degree in performance with the banjo, John Bullard has established a critically praised performing and recording career dedicated to exploring the artistic marriage of banjo and classical music. His concert repertoire includes performances of works from the Baroque Period along with later-period pieces by Schumann and others. More recently, Bullard has begun featuring new work by contemporary American composers, including a Caprice in D minor in the Romantic style from composer Frank Mullen and a set of 24 Preludes for Solo Banjo commissioned from Adam Larrabee. In addition, Bullard is now working on a new collaboration with the genre-fusing composer Joshua Stamper.
