The Rochester Folk Workshop has been host to the published and accomplished 5-string and banjo guitarist Vincent Sadovsky for almost 40 years. Prior to 2005, the Rochester Folk Workshop was a retail store in addition to a private lesson facility. Since then, this unique blue home-styled business is only used for private guitar and banjo lessons. Vincent Sadovsky has been teaching and playing the acoustic guitar and 5-string banjo since 1973. Sadovsky is known as one of the leading folk guitar and banjo players in the country. The Rochester Folk Workshop is not a retail store and does not sell any type of guitar equipment or accessories.
