Hands down, Ken wins the "farthest off the grid" award for Banjo Builders. "Hermit Thrush" is a glorious place... a wonderful, inspiring home to LeVan Banjos.
Ken is part designer, part mad scientist and full-time advocate for the instrument that has captured his heart. You sense his enthusiasm throughout every aspect of his work.
Oh, and Hugo the singing dog makes a cameo.
