Above are the photos from our February meeting. Somerville Banjo crafter, Tommy George, shared with us his local, handmade art of custom crafting banjos. He and his business partner, Christian Stanfield, believe that banjos are extremely important to Tennessee’s musical heritage. Their art was featured in this fall’s edition of Tennessee Home and Farm magazine. We all enjoyed the performance.
