Mats Fagerberg, banjo

 

Born in Stockholm, but left the tradjazz scene of the capital when he moved north in the early 70s. Then he gave up banjo-playing in favour of the violin. But when he met buddies from the old days he picked up his banjo again and became one of the co-founders of Barfota Jazzmen.

A devoted collector of banjos he usually prefers one of his old VEGA instruments when it comes to recording sessions.
