Historical Society: The Return of Banjo Eddie

Wild Bill Mitchell's mural of Banjo Eddie at Anacortes Christmas Parade 2018

Please join the Guemes Island Historical Society for the Return of Banjo Eddie! On January 14th Michael McGuinness, David Heath and friends will present the Life and Times of Banjo Eddie. Renowned for his oft times cantankerous antics, his life was defined by his music and the friends it drew to him. Although many didn't even know his last name, everyone knew who “Banjo” was; or did we? Come and hear the story behind this island legend, as told by friends that knew him best. The presentation begins at 7pm at the Guemes Island Community Church.

As usual, the GIHS will hold its monthly business meeting immediately following the presentation. All are welcome to attend. For more information about the GIHS feel free to contact Tom Deach by phone at 360-708-2582 or email:
