Steve Martin Banjo Prize Livestream

Compass Records will be partnering with Deering Banjos to host the official livestream for the Steve Martin Banjo Prize Thursday, November 10th at 7PM EST. Originally conceived of and launched in 2010 by comedy legend and banjo player Steve Martin, the Banjo Prize has put half a million dollars into the banjo community over the past decade. Starting in 2019, the new Banjo Prize became an annual award of $25K to one or more banjo players across the stylistic spectrum including both 5 and 4 string banjo masters.
