The Sierra has been Deering's flagship upperline banjo for the last 20 plus years and it remains one of the most respected and sought after banjos in the world. Featuring a sleek satin finish, an -06- tone ring, ebony fingerboard, and inlays designed by Greg Deering himself, the Sierra has garnered a reputation for its reliability, its incredible tone, and quality that will perform night after night.
We are happy to feature the Grammy winning singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist Tim O’Brien on the Banjo Studio podcast. Tim grew up singing in church and in school, and after seeing Doc Watson on TV, became a lifelong devotee of old time and bluegrass music.
We recently sat down to talk with 5-string banjo legend Tony Trischka. Tony has been a pioneer in progressive bluegrass and 5-string banjo for decades. He has won numerous awards and has pushed the banjo into new territories.
