The Deering Banjo Company is heading over the pond in a few weeks to join Eagle Music Shop in bringing the celebration of 40 years of crafting Deering banjos to the UK! Together with the world renowned Kruger Brothers, and fantastic supporting musicians such as JigJam from Ireland, this will be an epic banjo celebration day of workshops and on-stage performances!
Held on board the Star of India in San Diego’s beautiful downtown harbor, the Deering 40th Anniversary Benefit Concert was a magical evening for all who attended. Surprises included performances by Steve Martin, George Grove of Kingston Trio fame, and Johnny Baier, executive director of the American Banjo Museum in Oklahoma City. Guests were treated to hearing Martin and Grove each perform a number with the world renowned headliners, Kruger Brothers Band.
