Banjo Historian

Playing the banjo of early Grand Ole Opry star Uncle Dave Macon

Jim Lloyd’s Rural Retreat barber shop also serves as a banjo museum featuring a dazzling collection of open back and resonator five-string banjos. He has banjos from 1840 to present.  Some can only be seen in Rural Retreat and the Smithsonian. Ask Jim about them. He is an encyclopedia of information about the instruments.





Jim also takes his museum on the road, offering both a display and banjo history workshops that delight young and old alike.
