We are excited to travel across the pond next month to Huddersfield, England for our 11th annual Banjo event with Eagle Music Shop!
The “Banjo 11 Celebration” is an all day event that will take place on Saturday, February 24th 2018 at The North Light Gallery (behind Eagle Music Shop), Brooke’s Mill, Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield, HD4 7NR.
This day will be packed with a fusion of world class music including the best of American and Irish styles, jam sessions, on-stage performances and demonstrations topped off with an evening concert from the internationally renowned Kruger Brothers.
Greg, Janet and Jamie Deering will be in attendance to celebrate and look forward to acknowledging Eagle Music’s 11th Anniversary as the number one long term dealership for Deering Banjos!
We also have a very special surprise workshop planned for you! In addition, Greg will be sharing banjo care advice, and as always giving any of your banjos free set-ups throughout the day. This is one of the few times Greg is over the pond where you get to sit down with him and ask any any all banjo questions you may have.
We are excited to announce a brand new range of Tenor banjos that you will get to meet on this day! The Erin’ Irish Tenor Banjos! They are built through several years of collaboration between Greg Deering and Steve Noon, owner of Eagle Music, who is a long time Irish Tenor player. This banjo is exclusive to Eagle Music, and you will have the chance to pick one up to play at the “Banjo 11” event!
Many of the tenor artists performing will be playing a brand new Erin'.
