Meet the Artisans

Metal Artisan in Haiti The Jamtown vision sees people in North America creating music with friends and family. Not fancy rock songs or orchestra performances, just a little music. Starting with our motto "Play A Beat You Can Repeat" we make it easy and fun for kids AND adults to join the band. Our instruments are special, authentic, and beautifully crafted. Each is handmade ~ from countries all over the world. Artisans utilize ancient knowledge and natural, sustainable materials like bamboo, gourds, and seeds. For the cost of a single cheap guitar, which no one will use, pass out cool instruments to a group of friends and expect to sound good,and feel good! As a member of the Fair Trade Federation we work with small producer groups from developing countries and provide important support to low-income families through fair wages and other valuable assistance.

Juju Stick Shaker

It's important for me to deal with fair trade companies that create jobs and pay the artisans a decent wage. I was happy to see that the Village Country Store carried JAMTOWN instruments, a fair trade company.

The Juju Shaker is well made and will last a long time. I am very happy with my purchase!

Thank you so much Janice for your FIVE STAR review! We love carrying Jamtown Instruments; their work is pivotal to the fair trade principals and ethics. Jamtown World Instruments artisans utilize ancient knowledge using natural sustainable materials indigenous to their culture and country including bamboo, gourds and seeds! Your review helps to instill over all confidence in the quality of our hand percussion musical instruments. Thank you Janice for your support of the fair trade movement! I hope to see you again soon! Thank you! Michele Adams/Shopkeeper
Look, sound, feel: Beautiful

My husband and I picked up this drum for our musically-inclined, behaviorally-challenged nephew. Once in hand, we were impressed with the artistic craftsmanship and options for sound making. We gave it to our nephew while on holiday at the beach so the ocean sound option was timely and soothing. So happy with our purchase!

It was a true inspiration to read your review Mary, such a beautiful review! Thank you so much. - Michele Adams
