Most of the banjos I recover need a new neck and some replacement parts. I shape the necks using manual tools ( raps, files, sanding blocks, chisels, drawknive, spokeshave) and take all the time necessary to make sure it is comfortable and easy to play. Every neck is made with the best quality wood and parts. Inlays are Mother of pearl or Abalone, I do not use plastic or synthetic inlay...

As I was working on this book project, I stumbled onto another kind of resource that might represent a second generation of recordings that themselves represent a potentially important, and somewhat more modern research tool: private recordings of banjo workshops and retreats conducted during the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s that capture much in the way of the music but also record the musings of the...
