who knew a treasure lay up in guthrie....

i've been to this small town many times...great antiquing, barbecue and Christmas festival. but i had never been to the Banjo Museum until yesterday. you may ask, "why the banjo museum?", it's not my regular gig, but in april Buddy Wachter, Hall of Famer in the banjo world is coming to the Philharmonic AND the banjo museum is moving to Bricktown. so off to banjo world we go and although unsure of the enjoyment factor ahead of time, I was slightly amazed.

These instruments are works of art and define what was truly America's first music form. Here are a few pics i took, enjoy, check out their website and make the trip, you won't be disappointed. Plus, there's a Shakey's tribute room!

Hey, call me and we'll go spend a day in Guthrie.
