Very quick sound demo on my latest gourd buil.

I was hoping to get this one strung up today but the hand rubbed oil finish needed a bit more hand rubbing, oiling and finishing. #handmade #minstrelbanjo #oldtimebanjo #banjobuilder #fretlessbanjo #luthier #earlybanjo #madeinlondon #madeinbritain thanks to @bronze_artist for the castings

Run Away, fCFBbC tuning. Learned off a @bryansuttond28 record. I got it for his flatpicking and was blown away by his clawhammer playing. #banjo #clawhammerbanjo #oldtimebanjo #oldtimemusic #bryansutton #dropthumbsnotbombs

GHS Stainless Steel Five-String #BanjoStrings are among the most played in the world, from legends such as #JDCrowe to today's younger generation, such as Russell Carson. 
#GHSartist #RussCarson (@81crowe) plays GHS PF185 #banjostrings; the bright tone and clarity of the stainless steel helps his banjo to cut through the mix, with a quick attack to keep up with his picking.

We're in the studio next month to start working on a brand new, original, full-length album, then dipping into NC, TN, KY, and back to VA for a few shows. And speaking of new (sort of) music, here's a more somber, unreleased song we recorded this summer (but it's definitely fall music). You can get it for free (along with our full-length, debut album) from the good folks at @noisetrade. For those of you who don't know, we didn't write this song; it's an old spiritual that The Carter Family eventually took and delivered, beautifully. If it's original music you want, go get that full length. Happy Tuesday, friends. .

Thanks to all who keep the old time music going in our community by attending this biweekly Jam, we are blessed enough to live in a region so ate up with good music like this that different folks (as well as regulars) show up each jam, and many (as you can see from the video) are champions and masters of the music. #murfreesborooldtimejam #maydaybrewery #thebestneighbors #justanothereveninghereintennessee #oldtimejam #tennesseeoldtimemusi #oldtimebanjo #oldtimefiddle #buckdancing #thomasmaupin #championbuckdancer #prettylittlewidow #tennesseeoldtimemusic #murfreesboromusic #murfreesborolife #murfreesboromusicscene #murfreesborotn

Banjo tune of the week is West Fork Gals, one of my favorite tunes to play on banjo. Thanks to @squirrelbanjo for including me in this one.

Old time music is ever evolving- with each player comes a new interpretation, new composition, new nuance to this music we all love. Your next banjo should reflect that- keep the tradition alive and play something different. Claw a Renan Banjo. .

Last detail shot of the Krazy Kat / Marek/ Mande banjo. I squared off the upper part of the neck, like the early heel-less “minstrel era” banjos. I went for the flattest finish I could, found nice “French” style, meaning brown instead of bright brass, tacks, and got a great mottled skin from Djembe Drums and Skins. Check them out a goatskins.com. Great product, great service, Shorty is a friendly helpful guy!

Local walnut and maple burl. Carved in a free spirited, gothic style. I’ve restored countless pieces of antique furniture and musical instruments. After 20 years of observation, I truly love original designs. This carving emulates Work from the Middle Ages, when craftsmen didn’t have much to look at or copy. They took inspiration from the natural world and what they saw in the great cathedrals. I love seeing work from that period! When people rely on their own imagination, wonderful things can happen!

Peghead details of the banjo I made for Marek.  I’ve really pared down the peghead from what I normally do on banjos like this, and added some carved facets.  The wood is curly maple, stained dark red-brown. It’s a wood-color combo I also have in mind for some 1870s-1880s, Dobson-Buckbee style banjos I have coming up.
