Jens Kruger, known for his inventive, hard-to-categorize musical style of composition and performance, has been inducted into the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame. And none other than the great humorist and banjo player Steve Martin presented him with this prestigious award. WFMT audiences will remember Jens’ performance with the Kruger Brothers and the Kontras Quartet during the latter ensemble’s residency at WFMT.
