The Thought Lot held its first Banjo Fun Day event on Sunday, Dec. 6. Banjo enthusiasts from every skill level came out to either learn basic chords, or play a music session with other fellow musicians. Singer/songwriter Kevin Neidig and bass, banjo and percussion player for Megan Jean and the Klay Family Band, Byrne Klay, hosted the event and acted as instructors. The Bedford Banjo Shop sponsored Banjo Fun Day and local banjo makers sold instruments from banjos made out of everything from old cookie tins to artistically hand carved wooden string instruments.
