KQ has been invited to join the Kruger Brothers and Steve Martin for a live performance on Late Night With David Letterman on Friday, Sept. 27! Jens Kruger will be receiving the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo from the man himself. Tune in and set your DVRs!
We are elated to announce that we have been awarded a grant by CMA's Classical Commissioning Program, and that we have commissioned Jens Kruger of the Kruger Brothers to write a new piece for Kontras! The piece will feature string quartet, guitar, banjo and bass guitar, and we will be premiering it in the coming year.
