Hello Porchlight friends and fans!
We are delighted to share with you that the first ever book about John Hartford has just been released! I just received my personal copy and feel this book covers a lot of the history that otherwise hasn't been well documented about John. Its beautifully written and artfully designed. It feels like the missing piece to the historic puzzle I was piecing together for The Porchlight Sessions film has finally found me.
For more information and the full press release, please visit our blog here.

Additionally, last month the Mumford & Sons signed banjo was completed! Thanks to Deering Banjo for all the hard work getting this together. It was quite the adventure.
About a year ago, we drew Chris Wadsworth's name. Thankfully too, he is a banjo player and now is so excited to take his skills to the next level with this beauty. I had the opportunity to hand deliver the banjo to him up in San Francisco and when I arrived he and his kids played a few tunes for me. It was great. They have an great lineup coming up for this year's Freshgrass in North Adams, MA where we held our World Premiere last fall.
Chris Wadsworth of Manitou Media receives the Mumford & Sons signed Deering Eagle II Banjo.
* The film is still currently working to clear the options for all of the licensing in the film. I am excited to bring you all your DVDs once this process has completed. I appreciate your patience while we work through it.
Have a great Summer!
