The Cloverlick Banjo Shop Family shares a passion for banjos and community. One day they decided to follow their shared dream of opening a banjo shop. It seemed crazy at the time, but fate, hard work and good fortune have now delivered the opportunity to introduce a well-respected, old-time banjo shop to a new generation of players and artists.
Each banjo is made by hand under the skilled eye of master luthier Mark “Rooster” Austin. We take pride in every careful detail, every chisel stroke, every move with a rasp, to create these heirloom instruments that are true works of art. Made by hand with love in Ft. Collins, CO est. 2001.
CLOVERLICK BANJO SHOP ORIGINS
Cloverlick Banjo Shop Founder Jeff Kramer shares his story and demonstrates authentic traditional banjo building methods and materials from beginning to end.
We care deeply about the environment and stewardship of the land upon which we call home. In order to follow our passion as craftsmen who utilize raw materials provided by the earth, we want to make sure that it is done so in the most sustainable way possible. Our shop is built with repurposed materials, Low impact LED lighting/skylights, and working towards off grid solar.
We are proud members of the SUSTAIN GREEN ROSTER.
