Business Profile

W.G.F Howson UK Banjo maker and repairer Since starting the course in 2009 making and repairing musical instruments has always been my full time occupation, after leaving I opened up my own workshop in East London and for the next five years worked professionally as a repairer but also making a few guitars and banjos for people.

Then in 2016 I made a trip to the states and for three months hitchhiked and Greyhounded with my banjo from New York to New Orleans to North Carolina as well as Virginia to Ithaca and back. During that time I was lucky enough to track down and spend time with a couple of my favorite musicians, Frank Lee who hired me to paint his kitchen and Richie Stearns who I got to take a couple of trips with and hangout. I also got to spend time with several of my favorite makers, Greg Galbreth, Jeff Delfield and Mac Traynham which was very inspiring.
