This holiday season Oklahoma City Metro retirement communities and assisted living centers have the opportunity to request the American Banjo Museum’s “Banjo Elf” (aka Outreach Promoter, LUCAS ROSS).


Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many residents of living centers are still separated from loved ones and are unable to participate in any holiday activities. American Banjo Museum hopes to help share some joy and music this time of year through this initiative.


“My heart goes out to those who are separated from loved ones,” said Lucas Ross, ABM’s Outreach and Promotions Coordinator, “We’re just hoping to bring some joy or distraction this holiday season.”


Facility directors can nominate their location to be visited by the “Banjo Elf” – depending on location, weather and necessary accommodations. Once chosen and time is set, Lucas will bring a safe-distanced mixture of holiday entertainment/banjo comedy, either by roaming from outside residents’ windows, or by scheduled performance through Zoom.


Dates run Tuesdays through Fridays from December 7 through December 18.
