Tom Nechville and Europe

Banjo innovator Tom Nechville of Nechville Music Products plans to be in Europe from 28 August to 18 September 2012. Details are being arranged, as reported in the spring 2012 issue of Nechville News, the company's online newsletter. Among many other items of news in the latest 'Nechville Insider' e-mail bulletin, Tom reports:

Nechville sponsored the Jack Hatfield Smoky Mountain Banjo Academy this year with the donation of a custom Classic Flex-Tone banjo. Nechville’s comfortable radiused neck was Flux-mounted on a prewar flathead-style one-piece-flange traditional body. The lucky recipient of this unit was Anne Christenson from Stockholm, Sweden, a member of the Swedish bluegrass band, the Hillfillies.
