George Wagman

Johnson City, TN (Banjo)

George Wagman, 20, originally from Pennsylvania, currently calls Johnson City, Tennessee home. He is a junior at East Tennessee State University majoring in Bluegrass and Appalachian studies with his prominent instrument banjo. Studying under the instruction of Dr. Nate Olson, both helped to form the first progressive bluegrass band of its kind at ETSU called Little Chicago. He says his happiest musical moment was “playing with the Del McCoury Band at Del Fest during the night jam on the Del Fest music hall stage.”
