Oh my this was fun.
If you've not yet met Dan Knowles, you're in for a treat. In addition to being a full-time Banjo Builder, Dan also makes his living as a banjo performer and teacher. As an artist, he's livin' the dream!
Dan is also a sensitive guy. It's not only one of his gifts, it plays into every aspect of his banjo life. Hearing him tell the story just confirms what a fine human being he is. But you'll figure that out within the first few minutes.
Dan is one more confirmation of what a unique group of individuals these north American Banjo Builders really are.
