From the Burnley Family & Kitchen Kettle Village …

Banjo Jimmy will be missed not only by his Kitchen Kettle Family, but the thousands of visitors that enjoyed his music over the years.  He always managed to put a smile on our faces with one of his jokes and never hesitated to make someone’s day by playing their favorite song.  We know he is in a better place smiling down on us strumming his banjo.  Rest in peace Jimmy.
