Griffin banjos' 100th banjo celebration - June 18-20, Shropshire, England

Posted by flowerofthewest on Monday, May 24, 2010

James Bowen, maker of Griffin banjos here in England, is celebrating making his 100th banjo.  The celebration weekend is in Lydbury North, Shropshire, England June 18-20 at the Powis Arms pub.  Camping with hook-ups available.  

James would like anyone who owns a Griffin banjo to come celebrate, along with anyone else who wants to join the fun.  We need other instruments beside just banjos, that's for sure!  :-)  There will be a concert on Saturday night with some favorite bands.

I own one of James' banjos (pics on the photos page) and love it.  I can't say enough wonderful things about James' banjos.  My banjo, 'Beauty' is made of cherry and sounds very sweet.
