New Head for My Banjo! Pete Seegerized

Friday, September 28, 2012

Pete Seegerized Banjo

I just got my banjo back from having a new head installed.  I bought the head from Deering.  The head is a tribute to Pete Seeger.  Like Seeger's banjo, it has the words around the head: "This Machine Surrounds Hate And Forces It To Surrender."

This new head may not make me play any better, but it sure does give my banjo some attitude.  I love it.

If you are interested in a Pete Seeger head, check out the Deering Store:

I grew up in Kingsport, TN. I was born and raised with bluegrass in my blood. Speaking of blood, I am fourth cousins with the Carter Family (A.P. and Eck specifically). I grew up going to the Carter Family Fold on Saturday nights. Now I live in Richmond, VA, but I haven't forgotten my roots. After a 30 year hiatus, I am taking up the banjo again.
