We’re absolutely delighted to say that the wonderful people at Deering Banjos have decided to donate the proceeds of one of their charity auctions to Community Music Wales.
The “Great American Banjo Company” have teamed up with the outstanding Mumford & Sons on their Delta Tour to create custom one-of-a-kind artisan “Goodtime” banjos that represent the locations the band will be playing around the world.
Each are personally signed by Mumford & Sons and will be auctioned online benefiting hand-picked local charities in the tour regions, and of course the proceedings of the Welsh banjo will be generously donated to Community Music Wales!
The Wales Charity Banjo is entirely one-of-a-kind, made with a black neck bearing the shape and name of Wales perfectly on the peghead. With pearloid inlays of white set into the Midnight Maple fingerboard, and green resonator, this banjo represents the lush green lands of Wales.
It truly is a beautiful instrument, which you can see and of course bid on here: https://www.deeringbanjos.com/collections/mumford-sons-charity-banjos/products/wales-charity-banjo
A huge thank you to both Deering and Mumford & Sons, we wish them the best in all their auctions and of course on their tour and hope they have an amazing time in Wales.
