Thomas Buchanan's folkmandolin
When Thomas moved to Cleckheaton in West Yorkshire in 2006, he brought with him over 20 years experience instrument making in the Highlands of Scotland where traditional music is still a strong part of a living and evolving culture.
Through his contact and involvement with celtic music and with the help and feedback from many fine musicians, Thomas has become in touch with the highest standards required by the highly skilled players of today's folk scene.
Phill Cunningham M.B.E, The Peatbog Faeries and Saltfish Forte are just a few of the top artists that are currently using Thomas Buchanan instruments to evoke the sounds that are at the forefront of traditional music today.
Quality materials are combined with unique designs to produce instruments that are so obviously a cut above. Once you have picked up a Thomas Buchanan instrument and discovered the ease of play and quality of tone you will understand why so many musicians just love them and love to play them.
