A rare Deering John Hartford 24-fret model banjo!!! Just for us!

Posted by site admin in Blog

As editing continues, we are acting upon a generous and abundantly kind offer-we-couldn’t-pass-up from Janet and Greg Deering. They are donating a John Hartford custom 24-fret model banjo, made just for the occasion, and with the added bonus of having one of the heads signed by John while he was still among us. It is being auctioned on Ebay for 10 days running from December 4th at 6:30 pm PST (9:30 pm EST) to Sunday, December 14th at that same hour, and all proceeds will be donated to Aereotwang to help fund the remaining tasks of the documentary. With deep thanks to Janet and Greg and the whole Deering family and crew for such an amazing gift of support to further the memory and musical legacy of John Hartford, we kick off this 10-day auction with great curiosity to see who will be the happy winner of such a beautiful and unusual instrument, and we thank you all for your continued interest and patience!
