Eagle Music Banjo Event

It is also our Sixth Consecutive Year as the World’s Number One Dealership for the USA Deering Banjo Company.

We are looking forward to another fantastic day of music, jam sessions, on-stage afternoon workshops and an on-stage evening concert performance from the world renowned Kruger Brothers. (Support act to be confirmed) Also an opportunity to browse what will be probably be the largest selection of modern and vintage banjos ever to be displayed for public viewing in the world!!!

Please join us at our Banjo 2012 event, where you will have the opportunity to personally meet five of the USA’s greatest icons in the banjo and American music world …Greg Deering, Janet Deering, Jens Kruger ‘Banjo’, Uwe Kruger ‘Guitar’ and Joel Landsberg ‘Bass’

Greg and Janet Deering founded the Deering Banjo Company over thirty years ago, a company that is now considered by the world’s greatest exponents of the banjo to be ‘The Worlds Greatest American Banjo Company’.

Jens Kruger the ‘Carolina King’ is without question one of the greatest five-string banjo players of all times. Uwe Kruger is a master Guitarist / vocalist and Joel Landsberg is one of the finest Bass players in the business. The Kruger Brothers now living in North Carolina, USA, are the hottest USA based band, having taken the world bluegrass and folk scene by storm for the past decade and a half.

The Kruger Brothers will play our on site venue ‘The North Light Gallery’ on Saturday afternoon for an On-stage-Workshop and an evening Showcase Concert on November 3rd as part of their official 2012 European tour.

Our special guests, Greg and Janet Deering will give an on stage afternoon workshop ‘The Banjo in Modern Times’ … Greg & Janet will also be available throughout the day to check out your personal banjo.

We look forward to seeing you here,

from

well we dont jam no, there is a slow jam usually orginized to suit everybody mid afternoon, but mostly its a sit and listen day for most of it, you will be entering the land classical and melodic banjo young Chris and in the presence of the worlds number one, without a doubt. there will be some playing in the foyer and here and there but it all usually stops when Jens turns up...wonder why??? ha ha ha

Jens is a wizzard mate! great clip you emailed me btw! Will be great to hear what he has to say and get a small insight into the way he thinks about the banjo.

I'm still a Scruggs man, always will be, but i realise the good it will do me to look at other styles!

Save me a seat Joe.
This event has been a highlight for me for the last few years.
Old friends, new friends, banjos and then to top it all The Kruger Brothers!
It's almost a religious experience. :-)
Chris, prepare to be amazed!

Chris Cooper Says:
Sunday, July 22, 2012 @2:05:26 PM

Eagle music is a pickers paradise to start with, then combine loads of friends, wall to wall banjos, a top banjo maker and a world class act and its all adding up to a prospective highlight of the year! :-)

well , sorry you missed it for so long, its nice to see some UK banjo players comming out to support this, its been the best event on the UK calender for years, but hey, you know the attitude of some UK players.

joemac Says:

Alan, it will be great to see you again mate. I shall be taking Sweetness, my RB4, are you taking one of your Gibbo's? always nice to see some good banjos there!!!!!

alanjg1 Says:
Sunday, July 22, 2012 @4:29:54 PM

Joe, you know the Gibson goes where I go mate.
Maybe Jens will check the set up on it again this year. It never sounded better than after he did it last year.
Top man or what?
Glad you're not neglecting 'Sweetness'. Stellings are great but no substitute for the real thing. Ha ha.

You've probably seen this video of The Kruger Brothers at NAMM 2012. Someone recently posted about it on another forum. If you haven't, it's not to be missed. Sorry if it's not a working link. Just copy and paste.

Alan, the link worked fine........man thats a good vid cheers mate. I shall put it in my you tube folder. I keep all mt concert vids in a folder on my desktop so i can go straight there. Your right, I love my gibson, it needs a new head and i am worried about tone change dure to that, but i guess i am going to have to do it. I got some Apollo D tuners on it now, cant wait to show you. Do you thing Jens would give us discount for a double service!!!!!!!!!! ha ha

alanjg1 Says:
Monday, July 23, 2012 @4:25:50 AM

Joe, we could ask him but it's hard to get discount on a freebie!

Sorry Andy, no Recording Kings allowed! :-)

Chris Cooper Says:

alanjg1 Says:
Monday, July 23, 2012 @5:49:19 AM

Only kidding Andy, (just stick a bit of masking tape over the name ha ha.)
Seriously, if you haven't been you should try and go.
Dont worry about the Bluegrass Police, they're barred mate!

Hmmm, which one should I take as both came from Eagle Music ?

Chris Cooper Says:
Monday, July 23, 2012 @12:46:39 PM

Andyincov Says:
Tuesday, July 24, 2012 @1:58:10 AM

I'll put some masking tape over it and write 'Deering' in felt tip. That should do the trick!

Chris Cooper Says:
Tuesday, July 24, 2012 @2:37:41 AM
