Edward Victor Dick

Edward Victor Dick began his career as a luthier in 1975. Strongly influenced by the folk music boom of the 1960’s, he immersed himself in the banjo and was soon performing with the band Back Porch Delivery based out of Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. He soon discovered that his ability to fix instruments superseded his musical talents, however, and in 1976 he founded Ed’s Music Workshop.
