Thursday, August 10 @ 6:30 pm - "How Building a Simple Mountain Banjo Changed my Life" - Glenn Carson read Foxfire Book #3 in 1975 and it changed his life. He decided to build a simple mountain fretless banjo described in the book using the hand tools he had available. Building that banjo was so rewarding and he met so many interesting people through it, that he has continued until present and 42 years later, Glenn is still making banjos. That first banjo also spurred a lifelong interest in playing traditional American acoustic music, and as a result Glenn learned to play clawhammer banjo, fiddle and mandolin while in his early twenties. He currently plays fiddle in an old time traditional band, Buc Hill Aces, with his wife and some friends. His son plays in Ricky Skaggs' band Kentucky Thunder. To date, Glenn has built about 80 complete instruments, and collaborated with other luthiers across the country. His specialty lies in the style of the better banjos built at the turn of the century and he will share about the design and construction of those instruments including the unique wood carving, and metal and pearl engraving found on many of the best examples. Glenn will share his story, some tunes and examples of his finished and in process banjos along with some original instruments. Registration requested.
