- In 1971 Michael
Holmes founded Mugwumps Instrument Herald to provide a central place
where people interested in folk music could buy, sell, trade and learn
about the musical instruments on which the music was made, namely banjos,
guitars, mandolins, ukuleles, autoharps, ukelins, zithers, glass harmonicas,
kazoos, and anything else he felt might be of interest to readers.
The website will
include some of the best articles from earlier issues, and eventually
classified ads, new articles about old instruments, profiles of contemporary
instrument makers and tips & techniques for repairing, and maintaining
vintage instruments, and building new ones.

links and some dandy photos, too!
