Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

What a great time it is to be involved with this early banjo music.....speaking from the viewpoint of the instruments themselves. There are so many fabulous makers out there. Such quality is available to us, AND we can personally know the crafstmen themselves. Getting an instrument made, and talking to someone over the internet as is being made...wow, it's awesome. I wish I could play and own so many more.....I like them all.

Another 'golden age' for the banjo, for sure.

I've been asked to teach/lecture at the Smoky Mt. Banjo Academy again this year (in May) and have been contemplating the purchase of a gourd banjo. I started to build one some years ago but never got around to finishing it...and my stuff is still in storage; my "new" workshop isn't complete (after 2 yrs).

There are too many makers out there! Deciding on one or the other is maddening.

I want (at least) one of each.
