Podcast 197: Greg and Janet Deering of Deering Banjos

Greg and Janet Deering (Deering Banjo Company) join us on this week’s podcast. Over the course of four decades, this husband-and-wife team has created one of the musical instrument world’s true success stories. Their company has produced over 100,000 instruments and continues to make around 30 banjos a day (all made in the USA). We talk about their early days at American Dream (the same cooperative that launched Taylor Guitars); how they grew their company; the banjo in popular culture; their array of instruments – from starter to collector-grade – and more.

This episode is sponsored by our friends at Mass Street Music. Check out their amazing selection of vintage and new guitars, banjos and mandolins and tell them the Fretboard Journal sent you.
