Jens & Uwe Kruger … They’re Back for a Second Time.
Two of the great performers, instructors and entertainers of the banjo and guitar will return for an encore. On March 26-27th, 2011, Fretmentor will host the Second Annual Banjo & Guitar Workshop Featuring Jens and Uwe Kruger in Lake Worth, Florida. Details of this event are posted at www.fretmentor.com.
Some people have yet to learn about just how wonderful these two gentleman are as both performers and as individuals. After the Kruger Brothers Palm Beach concert in 2009, I was able to encourage Jens Kruger to come down to South Florida for a banjo and guitar workshop for all interested music students. We have discussed making this an annual event that may one day grow to include other notable instructors and performers. South Florida is a wonderful location to visit and this venue offers many an opportunity to take a vacation during the spring and learn something at the same time. So I am excited to present the Second Annual Jens and Uwe Kruger Banjo and Guitar Workshop.
Here are some of the comments that were posted at the Fretmentor Forum after last year’s event:
“The word Musicality keeps ringing in my head over and over. I am walking around humming tunes, and I keep smiling. The time spent in the presence of Jens and Uwe was wonderful, and enlightening.”
“I was impressed by the breadth of both Jens’ and Uwe’s knowledge of music. To be able to play bluegrass, blues, rock, country and classical, among others, just floors me. But their personable nature just made it so much fun to be around them during the workshop and during the concert.”
“Truly a wonderful experience. It was motivating in the musical venue but uplifting in a broader sense. The workshop far exceeded my expectations and I was sorry that it was over.”
“Today was one of the most memorable days of my life. A classmate who had met them previously said last week how personable they were and wow were they.”
“Kudos to the Krugers for a great workshop and to Fretmentor for setting up such a well-run, informative and even inspirational event.”
“It’s very clear that the weekend was amazing. Jens talked more than about music. He talked about being aware and connected to life. What a great break from the mundane life. I knew it would be great but it far exceeded my expectations.”
