2020 Virtual Hall of Fame
As we cannot host our banjo friends from around the country who would typically be “road-tripping” to OKC, we’re going to bring the Hall of Fame experience to you from the comfort of your living room! Leading up to the induction ceremonies, we invite you to tune in at noon CDT each day from October 12-16 for an interview with each of our inductees about their life’s work with the banjo. This year’s inductees are: Gary “Biscuit” Davis for Five-String Performance; Ed “Fast Eddie” Erickson for Four-String Performance; Don Reno for Historical; Geoff Stelling for Design & Manufacture; and Roger Sprung for Instruction & Education.
Then, on Friday, October 16 at 7PM CDT, we’ll be broadcasting a coast-to-coast road trip as we visit each of our honorees and present their induction ceremony into the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame from their hometowns. In addition to presentations to our honorees, the Hall of Fame program will include special guest appearances by Dolly Parton, Tony Trischka, John McEuen, Jason Skinner, Bill Dendle, Shelley Burns and many others.
