We are hosting an Early American Banjo gathering. The committee for this event are John and Elaine Masciale, Tim Twiss, Al Smitley, and Andy Chase. At the end of the last gathering there was a lot of interest in continuing with the gathering, but we needed a new venue. After a lot of searching we are pleased to announce that Renfrew Museum is willing to host us.Our goals are:!. To educate about and create an appreciation for the early American banjo, its musical repertoire, and its role in American history.2. To develop and foster fellowship and camaraderie among players who are often isolated geographically. This fellowship creates increased opportunity for conversation and mentorship.3. To welcome and mentor new players.4. To be a resource for players for sources of music, instruments, and accessories.5. To provide a cost-effective, impactful opportunity for players of early American banjo.6. To have fun. Lots of fun.Based on this event we hope to plan future events.Come join us!See More

Let me know if this comes out bigger, if not I will email it to you. Thanks for the banjo bridges by the way. They are serving wonderfully. I am having a problem with the nut sliding out of position this time of year. The strings slide it over. It doesn't really make any difference in playing, but I wonder if there is a way to stop that. I suspect its just something to do with humidity or the lack of it.
