On Sat evening, we will be part of the Stormy Weather Arts Festival, of which we are a minor sponsor. Lisa, our wine rep from Galaxy will be pouring L’Ecole no 41 Semillon and L’Ecole no 41 red wine, from about 5p to 7p or so. Julie Adams, will be showing some of her photography at the same time….. I of course will be drinking both, along with a bit of Tullamore, to ward off the evil effects of cold weather……. we were hoping Bowman would participate as well, but, he is a bit stuck up……. So….. get down here for the Stormy Weather Arts Festival, as all the galleries will be showing new stuff, and will be offering fun times!! You can also stop by and see some of the New Linden’s we just got in stock……. the agave stringer one is absolutely beautiful!!!
On my Sunday rant, got a nice note from Brooks, who builds banjos……… thought I would pass it on!! Maybe he wants to come down and play for a couple hours?????? Hi Mark,
I really liked your rant yesterday and that is one of the reasons I go to your shop. Flounder is the other reason, even though I don’t even know the dude. Yall keep it real, that’s the bottom line for me.
I’m proud to say that my banjos are handmade right here in Portland. I even make most of the metal parts myself, so they are 98% handmade in America. I have to use ebony from India for the fingerboards and the goat skin heads come from Pakistan. I’m not super thrilled about the ebony aspect, but I don’t mind supporting goat herders from Pakistan. I’ve been in business for 12 years now making my banjos, that feels good. It means that at least the music community values a handmade craft.
