Attending the Black Prairie concert in March 2013 at the historical McCabe’s Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, California, I had the pleasant opportunity to catch up with multi-instrumentalist Chris Funk. I really enjoyed hearing his thoughts about songwriting and playing music, advice to those starting out on the banjo and his adventure with the instrument.
Deering artist and all round banjo virtuoso Jens Kruger joins us in the Deering factory to talk about what turned him onto the banjo, the importance of music education in schools and his upcoming performance at one of the worlds most prestigious venues.
We had a really great time visiting with Ashley Campbell at the Deering Factory this last week and would like to introduce her to you all. She is a delightful person and quite a talented banjo player. We are proud to welcome her into the family of Deering Artists!
