Look out for the Deering Banjo Bus on the road this summer as it travels to events across the country. Get ready to talk about the #banjobus!
Deering Artist Relations Manager Jamie Deering, along with banjo player and teacher Arthur Hancock, will be leaving the confines of Southern California to take the new Deering Banjo Bus across the country to a variety of events such as the Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of the Road Stopover shows late, the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association), the ACL Festival, and more!
The banjo bus, sponsored by Mel Bay, Remo Heads, Artistworks, Bluegrass Situation, and Kavanjo Banjo Pickups, will appear at a host of events where Deering will be offering free lessons, hosting jams, and a chance to see, try, and buy Deering banjos.
We want to hear from you! Have you seen the banjo bus on the road? If you have, take a picture and tell the world by sharing it through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and using the hashtag #banjobus! We would love to see your pictures!
