Adam Granger is from Norman, Oklahoma. Starting in 1963, he played guitar and banjo professionally throughout the South before moving to Minnesota in 1974. He has written about and taught flatpick guitar since 1972. Adam intermittently played guitar on, and wrote humor for, A Prairie Home Companion throughout its 41 years on the air. With fellow Oklahoman Dudley Murphy, he recorded the first double flatpick guitar album, Twin Picking, in 1977, and was a columnist for Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for the duration of its 20-year run. He "tied for sixth" at the second Winfield, Kansas flatpick contests and has gone on to judge and emcee many flatpick and fiddle contests. Adam Granger has played hundreds of square- and contra dances and has taught flatpick and rhythm guitar at over fifty music camps throughout North America and Europe, including the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop; Steve Kaufman's Flatpick Kamp; and Camp Bluegrass, in Levelland, Texas. He often accompanies fiddlers and has toured extensively with banjoist Alan Munde as a duo.
