Glenda aka "Banjo Betty":
Glenda has been a practitioner of various art forms for over 30 years. Having grown up surrounded by artists and musicians, she developed an interest in banjo at a very young age. Specializing in chord melody and harmony background, she also places an emphasis on a jazz theory approach. Glenda has been working with Bob and Chris on the Trifecta Banjo Association project since early 2010.
Even from an early age, Chris has always been in tune with music. Raised by a multi-instrumentalist father and music teacher mother, and alongside a brother currently pursuing a degree in music, musical talent and experience has guided him through the piano, drums, guitar, bass, and finally to the bright 5-string wonder that is the banjo. Pulling from all these diverse sources, Chris attempts to bring more than just traditional stylings to the banjo. Along with Bob and Glenda, They'll put on a unique musical experience you won't find anywhere else!
Starting at the age of 12, Rory learned from local banjo player - Bob Daniels, who studied with Earl Scruggs, to play the banjo, mandolin and the basic skills necessary to master the guitar, bass, bouzouki, fiddle, and piano. Since then, Rory has made it his personal mission to gain experience in all aspects of musical performance.
Rory has many years of experience working with musicians at Irish Fest and the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center as a stage manager and sound engineer.

Gold Tone Group started life as Gold Tone Banjos, founded in Titusville, Florida by Wayne and Robyn Rogers in 1993. Wayne designed and manufactured Gold Tone’s first banjo, the original TB-100 Travel Banjo, and began and selling the "Traveler" via mail order. After a wonderful review by Banjo Newsletter, demand for the TB-100 mushroomed.
As the company grew, Wayne’s innovations, combined with proven vintage designs, had dealers and their customers clamoring for Gold Tone’s affordable yet high-quality banjos. Gold Tone's offerings grew to include fretted string instruments of every description including four-string and five-string banjos, six-string banjos (banjitars), mandolin-banjos, Weissenborn Hawaiian steel guitars, metal and wood-bodied resonator guitars and mandolins.
