This week the wife and I were in southeast Oklahoma. In reading some tourist info I picked up along the way, I discovered there is a banjo museum in Oklahoma City. A side trip up to OKC was not in the cards for me on this trip, but it looks pretty good. I plan on checking it out on my next trip. I hope that building can withstand a tornado, because they’ve got some nice banjos there.
Such a shame to see something that’s created to be played kept away from that in a “collection”
I agree Dave, they should send them over the pond to me to keep the well exercised.
True…but nice to have some examples saved for people to enjoy seeing and for the history of them. Having them set aside might inspire some to become pickers and grinners. Cuz you cant pick a banjo without grinning, at least once you get that hard lick down!
The Banjo Museum is in the news! I have got to get over there and check it out.
