Did you know that Elle King plays banjo? The incredibly talented Elle King performed in the Deering Woodroom recently, armed only with a Sierra banjo. The Ohio born songstress is emerging as a rising star and has seen great success in the last year, receiving a Grammy nod for her platinum selling track, "Ex's & Oh's", as well as several prominent performances including The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Bonaroo and SXSW.
The Deering Banjo Company has launched the new Artisan Goodtime banjos – a beautiful collection of banjos offering a stunning aesthetic normally reserved for banjos at a much higher price point. And naturally, we are extremely excited!
The NAMM Show already seems like a distant memory, but it was only two weeks ago that Deering attended the annual trade show for the musical instruments industry with a new exhibit created to highlight the latest innovations in the Deering line of banjos, including some exciting new features that customers have been asking for. Check out this video for a sneak peak of what Deering has in store in 2016. We can’t wait for you all to see them!
Deering is no stranger to artists paying visits to the factory whenever they are in town and we recently had a visit from British born banjo wizard Dan Walsh who was here performing in Encinitas for the San Diego Folk Heritage folks.
There is a reason we all love the banjo. It has a unique tonal quality unlike any other instrument in the world and is instantly recognizable, regardless of its setting.

At some point or another we have undoubtedly all experienced playing instruments with satin or gloss finishes, normally favoring one over the other. And while satin and gloss finishes are always popular among Deering enthusiasts, we frequently have customers looking for a banjo but who prefer the feel of bare wood over a satin or gloss finish. Linseed oil is perfect for creating that natural wood feel while still being able to offer some protection and Deering has begun using it on some limited models this year.
With all the hype surrounding the much talked about release of hip hop biopic "Straight Outta Compton", it seems that everyone is digging out their old NWA cassettes and expressing themselves in every way possible...including the Muppets!
