About Us

Bear and a Banjo is a new musical podcast that tells the incredibly tall tale of a band that time forgot. Although history may have left them behind, Bear and Banjo rubbed shoulders with some of the greatest musical icons in history—from Leadbelly and Sister Rosetta Tharpe to Little Richard and Bob Dylan— unwittingly influencing the course of 20th century Americana. All their adventures are meticulously archived and presented by Dr. Q, played by Dennis Quaid. Bear and a Banjo features an original soundtrack, produced by Oscar-winner T-Bone Burnett (O’ Brother Where Art Thou, True Detective), written and performed by series creator Jingle Jared & Grammy-winning songwriter Jason "Poo Bear” Boyd with original lyrics by Bob Dylan.
