Jens Kruger plays the Vega Little Wonder Banjos

by Jamie Latty

Jens Kruger is one of those guys that you cant help but be in awe of. After many years of watching his jaw dropping 3 finger style, I oversaw the filming of this video of Jens playing Clawhammer on the Vega Little Wonder banjos.

I had no idea how good he was in this style. I distinctly remember watching his right hand as he warmed up before the cameras rolled. Before I knew it, everything around me was quiet. Nothing else mattered. I had been hypnotized by Jen's rhythmical clawhammer playing, bringing the best out of these two wonderful instruments.

Enjoy the video and check out the Vega Little Wonder banjo.
