This poem is dedicated to a hand-crafted Banjo named “Mary” that was created by “Doc” Huff.
On this ” Buy a Musical Instrument Day” I would like to pay tribute to a very talented man and his family who hand crafts Banjos. “Doc” Huff of Doc’s Banjos in Dallas, OR creates unique Banjos from scratch using wood from the trees on his property. Doc builds these beautiful musical instruments by hand in his small log cabin workshop ( which he also built). Doc designs and cuts the wood, dyes the skins and adds special strings to create a one of a kind Banjo that is not only beautiful to look at but also beautiful to listen to. Doc’s wife Florisell and his three children also help with the crafting business and his daughter evens chooses a name for each Banjo created.
If you are looking to purchase a Banjo or are just interested in Banjo making I invite you to visit Doc’s Banjos online or in person. It will be an experience you will surely enjoy.
