You have likely heard about the Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers, a global series of events in small cities and towns around the world. It began in 2012 when Mumford & Sons had a vision to create a music festival that celebrates local people, food, and culture, where everyone pitches in and everybody gets something back. It is in this spirit that we were inspired to create something truly special for the Stopovers in 2013 and created five one of a kind Gentlemen of the Road Banjos – one for each Stopover – signed by all four members of the band. The banjos are auctioned off with proceeds going to a charity of the bands choice that best compliments each Stopover location. This tradition has been continued for Gentlemen of The Road 2015! We were thrilled to have the UK Stopover be located in Scotland and to create the first Scottish Gentlemen of The Road Banjo  for Aviemore, you can see here...
