These are two pics of the same banjo. The black Deering head is new and the Celtic knot I drew on last year. The head broke, hence the new black head. I think it looks good. it is also a dream of mine to someday make my own 5-string banjo
Tony Trischka, Steve Martin, Noam Pikelny, the Eagles,Earl Scruggs, Gordon Lightfoot, John Denver. The list goes on...

I fell in love with the banjo when I first heard it played on a record from a gospel bluegrass band that lived in Hawaii. I forget the name of the band but the music was great. I went to the local music store and bought a inexpensive banjo to learn on. I found a good course book that would take a year to do. It was a good book, but when I finished it I wanted more.
I tracked down the author and found to my delight he lived here right in winnipeg on the other side of town.
After two lessons with him I was sure I would be playing the instrument for the rest of my life, So I went back to the music store to upgrade to a good one. I did't find the ideal banjo but this one has a nice sound, and I am happy with it.
