I found a hand made Banjo built by my Great-Grand Father,Benjamin Todd (1878-1954) He is pictured here to the left of this Bio, This picture is a copy from a tin lithograph taken around 1900, when he was in his early 20's. After I found his home made banjo. It sparked my interest in learning how to play. And i'm always wanting to learn something new, but I like the old traditional styles. But I love the music and I have a large memorbilia bluegrass collection that I have aquired over the years and I'm always looking for new interesting items to add to my collection. I have regular jam session in the basement of my store every Tuesday night, on going for over 12 years now. And I enjoy playing at Nursing Homes and Senior Citizens Centers, with some of my regulars jammers that pick with me in my area.
