About Ross Stuart:

Originally an outdoor carpenter, Ross Stuart designed and built the first iron ukulele about six years ago in his backyard workshop. After five years of research and development, the great Canadian mush-uke was born. This affordable alternative to the iron ukulele was initially sold at craft fairs under the banner 'ROSBILT IRON RESOPHONIC GUITAR and MUSHROOM.' Encouraged by the positve response for the mush-uke, Ross is able to realise a dream and build his guitars full time. He also has plans for full-sized six strings (iron, resophonic), slides and tri-cones.


Rosbilt Tin Can Banjo and Ukulele Maker


With humour and candour, Ross Stuart will lead you through the trials and tribulations of making the various incarnations of banjos and ukeleles: the iron uke, mush-uke, and now - the tin-can (and of course - the electric tin-can uke). Learn the intricacies that go into making a (fairly sophisticated) ukulele and banjo from scratch.

Ross and his banjos and ukes will be onsite all day on Saturday and Sunday.
