Reviews from students:

“I highly recommend this course. Noel Folstad has been very fast to respond to any questions, and everyone elses questions and answers are shared on the site as well. It was perfect for me , already having built several primitive banjos, but wanting to build a more professional piece that anyone would be proud to own, or play. His course is also great for the complete beginner as well, and , the price is almost unbelievable!! Check him out!!” R. McLain”The info presented by Noel is easy to follow, and invaluable. I’ve already saved a good amount of money by not making mistakes I’m sure I would approaching this process on my own.” J. Wardle”A great how-to course offering everything you need to know” —J. Glover

“Well I am not as far along as others, but in the videos so far Noel is very through. He is responsive to posts and questions! He offers his advice and is very helpful in decision making. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to build their own or make it a living for themselves. Keep up the great work Noel!” —D. Brinkel

“I have built some necks for existing pots in the past with mixed results.
Noel is doing a great job of explaining and demonstrating the steps in building a banjo.
I’m looking forward to learning and sharing ideas through the completion of my first complete build.” —K. Deuel

Métis Fiddler Jamie Fox visits the Tiki Parlour

Here’s a video that showcases a remarkable musician and a powerful strand of old-time music that many Americans know little about. Master Métis fiddler Jamie Fox spent a week at the Parlour filming, teaching and performing. This also marks the beginning of a new project for Tiki Parlour Recordings that will come together over the course of the next year. Enjoy the video and pictures!
