Banjolele














A new hybrid I built for the relaunching of a play called Reesor. Unfortunately the Ragga can only be played by
David William McEathron and he was unavalible for thos production. I will be filling the roll and decided something simple would be best. Basicly the banjo that was donated by The Kensignton Hillbillies and the neck was kicking around from and old busted ukulele I had lying around. In this image you can see Andrew Penner and how he is when doing musical direction for a play.

Awesome, awesome, awesome, banjolele! I want one! How about a 'cellolele? or DoubleBassolele?

Your banjo can be 3, 4, even 5 inches longer :-)

But then it wouldn't be a banjolele, just a regular old banjo. Nit that that's a bad thing.

That's a nice Banjolele!!!! I wonder how it sounds. Can you maybe put a clip to hear the sound; or if you did already can you direct me to it. Thanks!!
