It was good to meet up with Ken again, it was a while since his last tour. We had a full house, the audience was treated to a virtuoso performance. My pupils came back the following week full of enthusiasm. I would like to thank Joe Mac and Bob McClean for the review of my Pilgrim banjo range, have a look on youtube Pilgrim Banjo Review.
Pilgrim banjos should now be available at all good music shops, Go to www.jhs.co.uk to find local stockist. I have the full range in stock and would be pleased to show any interested banjo player from beginer to professional performer at any time that would be convenient .
Thanks to Peter aka buckbybanjoboy for coming over to Fiddlers Green at Broughton Astley , it was good to meet you.
