New Music Monday! Featuring Gayle Skidmore, a respected San Diego musician performing her recently written song “Movin' On” with a style all her own on a Vega #2 banjo. This is the first “Deering Factory Sessions” video, directed by our friends The Joelsons.
Beverly's talents have taken her across the United States and Canada several times as a featured performer at the premiere country, folk and bluegrass festivals, as well as a performance at Carnegie Hall. Her considerable abilities have led to appearances on numerous television programs. She was a frequent guest performer on the "Hee Haw" show over several seasons; a featured guest on Disney Channel's "Epcot's America", hosted by Lloyd Bridges; and two specials for The Family Channel: "Silver Dollar Jubilee Special" and "Silver Dollar City Christmas" with Pat Boone and Lee Greenwood.
Scott Avett. Player of the Deering Sierra, Black Diamond, Tenbrooks Legacy and Vega Senator banjos, is one of the lead singers and founding members of the folk-rock band, The Avett Brothers. Scott primarily plays the banjo but also plays harmonica, drums, piano, acoustic guitar and electric guitar for the band based out of Concord, North Carolina.
“In the jungle the mighty jungle the lion sleeps tonight”…but not if he has to hear a banjo playing! OK…just joking. But a banjo safari? You bet! Recently I received some great pictures from one of our customers who actually organizes banjo safaris. I think from these photos we can learn that banjo playing is so much fun that you don’t leave home without one!
