20 years of one string banjos

I've been making one-string banjos for over 20 years.  My husband Pat and I used to travel around to schools in Charlotte and make them with classes of kids. We've probably made thousands of them.  I always enjoyed watching the fun that happened once they had their banjos in hand.  Jack and Oliver taught themselves how to play "Smoke on the Water."  Click here for instuctions on making a one string banjo like the one in this video.

When you play a song with someone you make a connection.  Connections can lead to understanding and friendship and a more peaceful world.

Here is a smaller version of the banjo that I have been making recently. Adults love them too! I will be making these and giving them away as a way to promote peace and goodwill.  More to come!
