Eli has returned to his home state of Maine after completing a B.A. in Bluegrass from East Tennessee State University where he toured with the ETSU Bluegrass Pride Band and Virginia-based band Jeff Brown and Still Lonesome. Before arriving in Tennessee he studied Jazz for several years at Johns Hopkins University. These days Eli performs around New England with numerous bands and musicians, including Tony Watt & Southeast Expressway and Laura Orshaw & The New Velvet Band. Eli received his first banjo lesson at 317 Main and is excited to pass on his knowledge of a diverse range of genres on both the banjo and guitar.
