Jens Kruger at Berklee College, Boston

Bluegrass Today (the website formerly famous worldwide as the original Bluegrass Blog), carried an impressive report yesterday about Jens Kruger of the Kruger Brothers (CH/USA).

Kruger had a two-day Artist Residency at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass., in the course of which he worked with an ensemble, gave private lessons to the College's banjo students, and did a two-hour clinic. According to Berklee staff banjo instructor David Hollender, 'the clinic included what was probably the most beautiful banjo playing I’ve ever heard', and Kruger's residency as a whole exceeded all expectations.

Further Banjo Artist Residencies at Berklee are scheduled for the coming months. Read the whole report here.
