    The Goonhavern Banjo Band disbanded in 1972. Confirmed by Tony Mansell article. I am not sure that Fred Eplett returned from USA to form the band, I thought it was South Africa, as some of his relatives lived there and his home was built on the style of South African homesteads.

      Thank you for the feedback Derek. It may well be family lore rather than history that Fred Eplett returned from USA. We had an uncle and an aunt who were long term members of the band and mother played with them for a couple of years so that they were a topic of family conversation. So many friends and relatives travelled out and back from the Cornish Diaspora that it would be easy to mix the two up.
