Tanner Bingaman, affectionately known as Tanjo (Tanner + banjo = Tanjo) sings original folkmush & arrangements of mountain tunes via guitar, banjo, & harmonica. He has made ends meet as a vegetable farmer, rock climbing enthusiast, river guide, & all the while has managed to continue playing shows to the outcasts of bar rooms, living room concerts, and festival attendees alike. He prefers barefoot walking and once saved the family dog from a rattlesnake.
In 2021 Tanner was selected by the Susquehanna Folk Music Society as the Pennsylvania's Emerging Artist of the Year. Most recently, Tanner's full band was awarded Bluegrass Band of the Year by the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall of Fame.

Though his recording history is extensive, fans still insist Tanner songs are best paired with stories in intimate settings.
Tanner currently gigs solo, as various vagabond projects (Shine, Joe & Tanjo), & with the progressive bluegrass band Seldom Said No. He is working on funding & recording for an exciting new full band project focusing on his punk roots with a folk flare.
