Ron Block | Deering Live

We're very excited to feature the longtime banjoist for Alison Kraus & Union Station, Ron Block, on Deering Live. When it comes to bluegrass banjo, Ron is simply one of the best in the business. His feel, tone, and timing drive the music that is rooted deeply in tradition but continues to push it into the future.

Ron has a new album coming out July 1st with Irish tenor banjo master Damien O'Kane called Banjophonics. We'll be talking about this album as well as digging deep into how he achieves his sound on the banjo. Take listen to a few tracks of the new album below!

    Longtime Alison Krause and Union Station fan here. Ron Block is a phenomenal player. Looking forward to the album release. You guys at Deering offer up some real fine features, along with great instruments.

  • Carl Brownfield

    I can’t wait to get a copy of this album for our radio broadcast – Radio Goldfield – The voice of the old west.

  • Luke

    God! I think they are both fantastic! I loved listening to this!

    I used to like listening to Allison Krause but if this is as good as it gets for the banjo player, I will NEVER listen to that band again!!!
