Kruger Brother's Music Academy

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Wow, what a weekend! This "Experience"just rocketed to the tip top of my fun banjo camps I've attended. Super location at Jen's property where they just happen to have their own beautiful, HUGE studio. Jens for banjo, Uve for guitar, Joel covered base. We also had a one mandolin player and one fiddler player. We started mid Friday and finished mid Sunday. Lots of face time, great classes, super catered/home cooked meals nice Saturday night concert that included Charlie Walsh and Laura Boosinger.

Just no way to overstate how well this first Academy went off! You GOTTA plan on trying their next one, just gotta!

Primarily a singer of folk and sea songs who accompanies himself but after moving to the Galax area of Virginia I have also been learning & playing a lot of old time tunes. Still performing occasionally, but usually without a band. Still mucking about, occasional gigs but mostly and jams and Fiddler's conventions. Played real seriously for about ten years in 60 & 70s. Traveled and performed in area around Philadelphia playing the Coffee Houses, parties, school concerts and Festivals. Tapered off playing through next couple of decades (career and all those excuses) started playing regularly again about 2002, still with my ཻ Seeger model Vega long neck. Got into a few banjo camps and festivals to jump start the revival and have been having a ball ever since; after all Music fuels the engine of life! Made an all walnut copy of a Frank Proffit banjo in the late 60s that traveled the world with me but it has finally became unusable and now adorns a grand daughters wall. I've made another banjo from a pile of orphaned parts, with the help of Stew Mac, and restored what we believe is a Buckbee given to me, unplayable, by a friend. Christmas 2008 my wife presented me with a 12-string guitar and auto harp with the challange to re-learn these instruments so she could listen "to the rest of my music"........
