Greg will be hosting his Meet The Maker workshops at a handful of locations, where he will share stories of artists and events spanning across Deering Banjo Co's 43 years in business.

He will also demonstrate how to set up a banjo for the best sound, as well as offer maintenance tips to keep your banjo in great shape! 

And as a special treat for anyone attending the Florida or North Carolina workshops, Greg will be joined by Mark Johnson (the creator of the Clawgrass style) and Terry Baucom (the Duke of Drive)! 

Greg will be wrapping up his tour in Washington DC where he and his daughter, Jamie Deering, will take part in the NAMM Music Education Advocacy D.C. Fly Invisiting with their elected representatives on Capitol Hill to advocate for the right of every child to learn and grow with music.

We are very proud that Greg and Jamie will be representing Deering and the banjo community to fight for music education.
