Ruth Moody of the Wailin’ Jennys visited us yesterday…what a wonderful musician and singer! We are honored that she plays our Juniper 11″ open-back. The Jennys are touring the US this Spring. Catch them if you can!
Gary Davis made history at the Walnut Valley Festival this year. He is the first competitor to win FOUR TIMES in any instrument category, his being BLUEGRASS BANJO, of course! What an outstanding musician and even better human being. We are honored and delighted that he chose our Southern Cross HG 50 Bluegrass banjo. Thank you Gary!!
A little bit of history, folks! Joe Bethancourt with his Ome XXX #25.

EDDY DAVIS – Four-String Performance – A 2006 inductee for Promotion based on the world-wide recognition he brings to the banjo through his concert and film appearances (most notably with actor/musician Woody Allen), Davis is equally recognized as a banjo player, vocalist and performer. From his college days as a member of the original Salty Dogs, to years on the Chicago nightlife scene, to forays in the banjo nightclubs of the 1960s and 70s, to his acceptance as an integral part of the vibrant ongoing jazz fabric of Manhattan, the performance career of Eddy Davis is unique and worthy of recognition.
Josh Fox, banjo player and director of the critically acclaimed documentary “Gasland”, stopped by for a visit. Check out his projects! We are proud that such an advocate as Josh also plays one of our banjos!
