Banjo Supplies


Sadly, Hatfield Music Banjo Supplies with all its inventory was completely destroyed by the wildfires that razed Pigeon Forge November 28. For the forseeable future, the only items availabe are the Mel Bay books Jack authored and three or four banjos he was able to save. To view the books, go to

Jack plans on rebooting in the near future, gradualluy adding back his self-published titles and self-produced items such as banjo boards.

                                                                     The SPBGMA workshop registration below is still active.
In addition to the Hatfield Music building, Jack also lost his home, rental properties, and Hatfield Music Barn (which housed Smoky Mountain Banjo Academ)y - virtually all his property and possessions. If you would like to donate to get Jack back on his feet, go to Paypal and enter Jack Hatfield's email address as the payee.     Many thanks.
