Virtuoso Banjo player Jens Kruger is hailed as one of the foremost exponents of 5-string banjo in the world today and The Krugers have featured on The David Letterman Show. Here’s what they have been saying about them:
I used to think the banjo was somewhat limited to certain styles, until I heard Jens Kruger. Jens has played some of the most beautiful and expressive banjo I’ve ever heard – Ron Block of Alison Krauss and Union Station.
Jens Kruger has established himself as one of the world’s most musically sophisticated and technically accomplished five-string banjo players – Happy Traum.
