No one could deserve this award more! Along with the Kruger Brothers, Jens has visited us each year for the past six years and performed in showcase events here at Eagle Music. I have to say that In the times that I have met up with Jens, I have found and also seen him not only to be a great musician and maestro player of the banjo, but a wonderful human being, always finding time and showing interest in others. It’s been wonderful that he came into my musical life and that I have been touched by his music.
Jens plays a Deering Tenbrooks Jens Kruger Signature model banjo.
We are so looking forward to October 26th 2013 and having Jens here again with us for the Banjo Seven event along with the Kruger Brothers and a line up of other fantastic bands and fine musicians.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all here on the 26th
Steve and The Eagle Music Team
