"I started with a banjo Dad bought from Sears. I think it said Kay on the headstock. After a couple of years he got me a Hondo which I thought was really nice until some pickers at the Crafstbury Vermont Banjo Contest told me I needed a better banjo.
I was so hurt because it had been a Christmas present, but they were right. Almost immediately, Dad and Mom ordered a banjo from Gruhn Guitars in Nashville. I couldn't believe it when I got home from school to find it in the music room."
