Jens Koch plays banjo on 'Glee'

John Lawless reports on Bluegrass Today that in the popular US TV series 'Glee' the episode broadcast last night (15 Nov.) featured the sound of the banjo, played by Jens Koch (left) from Sweden's award-winning G2 Bluegrass Band.

However, the picks shown in the photo did not take part in the show. As Jens himself explains on Bluegrass Today, the show's producers wanted a plectrum-banjo sound - and, with the real bluegrass spirit, he did what had to be done. Note the picture on the wall behind him, and read the full story here.
