Fall is upon us again and this is one of the most beautiful times to be in Vermont. From the abundance of food produced by local farmers to the smell of apple pies cooking in the air to the maple trees displaying their vibrant colors, it is truly a season to behold and experience. I was recently speaking with a friend of Maple Leaf Music about how different seasons influence what instrument we choose to play. It's almost like the resonance of a particular instrument is suited for a certain season, like hot steamy summer nights are best paired with resonator guitars played with a slide. We both agreed that crisp fall weather pairs perfectly with the rhythmic drone sound of banjos. So this fall, I thought I would share some of the small banjo builders we carry here at Maple Leaf Music with you. I hope you have a chance to visit us and experience the sound of the harvest.
