Alison Brown | Deering Live Ep. 89

This week we are excited to feature award winning banjoist and Compass Records founder Alison Brown on Deering Live. In this episode Alison will demonstrate different ways to play blues tunes on the banjo with different soloing and comping ideas. We’ll also be talking about Alison’s new record that came out this past May called “On Banjo” and more! Be sure to tune in!

Watch Alison play her Deering Julie Belle banjo in the video below from a track that is featured on her new record "On Banjo"!
