Gourd Banjos by Barry
Welcome to my Gourd Banjo website. My name is Barry Sholder, and I am the maker of Barry Sholder Gourd Banjos and Barry Sholder Gourd Ukulele. When I make one of my instruments, I approach the building process as an organic sculpture taking into consideration the color and texture of exotic woods , shape and size of the gourds, color contrast. These elements combine to give the musician, not only a fine musical instrument, but also beautiful piece of art.
I hope you enjoy browsing my site.
