Once again, Eagle Music in Huddersfield are being recognised as Deering Banjos No. 1 reseller worldwide. If you have ever visited Eagle Music, purchased an instrument from them (or even just spoken to someone who has) this will come as no surprise; yet this accolade has been earned by the hard work and dedication of Eagle Music owner Steve Noon and his team. Did I mention that this is the 10th year that Eagle Music have been Deering's No. 1? That's right - ten years.
As has happened in previous years, this achievement is being celebrated on October 22nd with a day of music at the North Light Gallery in Huddersfield. Full details of the event can be found on Eagle Music's website but, as before, the highlight for many will be the return of The Kruger Brothers with their only UK appearance.
For many, The Kruger Brothers need no introduction. That Jens Kruger has such a close association with Deering Banjos comes as no surprise given the meticulous nature of his playing and his generosity in sharing his knowledge and experience; the guitar playing of Uwe is majestic and Joel's bass playing is masterful. Having recently attended Carolina in the Fall in Wilkesboro, North Carolina where we were captivated by their performance of the Spirit of the Rockies (with full orchestra) and they recently premiered their Roan Mountain Suite with the Kontras Quartet (who also appeared on their Lucid Dreamer album). On a personal note, if contemplating an Appalachian adventure, you should ensure that you add Carolina in the Fall to your itinerary.
Come to Eagle Music on Saturday October 22nd - help Eagle Music celebrate the great achievement of being Deering Banjos No.1 reseller for the 10th year and enjoy some of the best music that can be heard.
