Music Like You've Never Heard
The roots of the gourd banjo reach deep into African and Caribbean history. The banjo of North America is a legacy of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade that touches us all. Our unique gourd instruments are inspired by the blended culture of Appalachian tradition. The music of the mountains flows through our banjos, limberjacks and mouth bows right onto your front porch. Each instrument is handcrafted, and no two are alike.
Buy a ready-made instrument, or spend time with our artist, Dena Lee to see your instrument created before your eyes. Our instruments are played by professionals and beginners alike.
