October 30 - NitroGrass

Acclaimed banjo player Charles Wood and Asheville-based band Nitrograss will close the Fall Concert Series at the South Carolina Botanical Garden on Friday, October 30.

Wood started playing the banjo at age 15 and has studied under renowned South Carolina banjo player Al Osteen. By the time he was 18 years old, Wood was playing with ex-Bill Monroe sidekick Curtis Blackwell.

Wood has appeared on the “Late Show With David Letterman,” “A Prairie Home Companion” and toured in Austria and Germany. He has also played with actor-comedian and banjo master Steve Martin and Earl Scruggs, Pete Wernick and Tony Ellis.
