Why Voyageur?  The name Voyageur comes from a combination of sources.  I am of French-Canadian descent, love to canoe and kayak, and have always been interested in cartography.  So this combination of inputs, and the prompting of a friend, resulted in the name and ultimately the inlay designs. (Here are some pictures of my grandfather with his DOBRO and another with his fiddle . He played guitar, fiddle, mandolin.)
