Jens Kruger Inducted Into the Banjo Hall Of Fame

by David Bandrowski

We would like to congratulate our friend and Deering artist Jens Kruger on being inducted into the 2021 American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame in the Five-String Performance category in Oklahoma City. Glimpse into the red carpet evening with the Hall of Fame's introduction video - which begins with a special message from Steve Martin! This video is fantastic as it shows the path Jens took to get where he has gotten

Jens Kruger is one of the premier banjoists to have ever played the instrument, so this is truly well deserved. Congratulations Jens.
