Hey folks. Some of you may know that I have relocated to the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina a few months ago. I did bring 6 beautiful pre-war conversions with me and they are available. If you live close to Hendersonville, NC and would like to test drive any of these beauties, let me know...Bill

Didn't know that! I have more chance of visiting that region than the hinterlands of Maine!  I was in Brevard last year for banjo camp, may go again next year, and would like to get to Asheville one more time.

Will you still be working on banjos or this move a retirement from that activity?

Hi Ken,
We made it down to Brevard for the performance that the instructors from Bella's banjo camp put on this year. Incredible. I am trying to get a small shop set-up that will allow me to keep a hand in some banjo work, but it will definitely be on a smaller scale. Get down here for a visit sometime. It is a beautiful part of our country...Bill

Bill,
I’m originally from Tuxedo, just a little south of Hendersonville. I try to get back to visit family every year, maybe I’ll stop by for a visit to play some of your fine banjos!

Bill, I live just down the road in Greenville and get up to Hendersonville all the time (about a 45 minute drive).  I met you several times a few years ago at Banjothon and have alwaays been a fan of your work, as I have done a number of conversions and built necks also.  I have sort of stopped because my wife got tired on sawdust and shavings all over the house as I don't have a dedicated shop.  I'll try and come up and see you sometime after the new year!
