Homer Ledford worked as a high school industrial arts teacher at George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester, Kentucky before becoming a full-time instrument maker.
Musicians from all over the world have sought after his dulcimers, banjos, mandolins, guitars and ukeleles. Some of his works are on display in the Smithsonian Institution.
According to Homer Ledford’s official website he made over 5,776 dulcimers and more than 475 banjos during his lifetime. ~ HomerLedford.com ~
