New Lukas Pool Banjo

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

I recently drove from Little Rock, Arkansas to Mountain View to pick up my new banjo built by Lukas Pool and his soon to be wife Eden Foreman. To say the least, I was on cloud nine when I laid eyes on my new banjo!

Lukas and Eden are both incredible musicians and talented builders. Both are recent graduates of the Berklee College of music.  His parents own the local music store in Mountain View and his father is a skilled luthier. Eden came from a family that encouraged her woodworking and the use of her skills and hands.  They are quickly gaining reverence in the national old time music community for their musical and building skills.

Lukas patiently listened and guided me through the options for my vision of a new banjo build. Eden's inlaying skills and imagination helped me to complete the process.  Take a look at the results and judge for yourself.

I am retired after a 38.5 year career with the Arkansas Dept of Parks and Tourism. Eventually Ill be moving back home to Fayetteville. Love Bluegrass but prefer old-time. I've fooled around unsuccessfully for years with a fiddle and guitar but intend to learn OT fiddle and claw hammer banjo. If you know anyone that is patient and willing to help I'd be I have several fiddles and several more old open back banjos.......hopelessly looking for more. I also love painting with watercolors. My wife and I are members of the Mid Southern Watercolorists. I currently live in Little Rock. One of my banjo idles live a few blocks away. He has one of the most amazing collection of old banjos all of which are very top end collectables. He considers himself to be the care taker for future enthusiasts. He believes they are better investments than stocks and bonds. So far he's been right. Little Rock is an OT desert however, Fayetteville and the surrounding area has many players. I can't wait to move and join the fun.
