Lincoln Hensley

​Lincoln Hensley is a devout enthusiast of the Earl Scruggs and Sonny Osborne style of banjo playing and was honored to visit and study under the mentorship of Sonny on a regular basis for over 6 years. He also is in a partnership with Sonny in their own banjo company, KRAKO banjos. Lincoln has played the Grand Ole Opry and several occasions with Bobby Osborne and his band, The Rocky Top X-press, and has worked with and filled in with numerous touring bands in the past few years, and is now a founding member of The Tennessee Bluegrass Band. Lincoln is endorsed by GHS Strings and Recording King Musical Instruments.

“At 23 years old, Lincoln Hensley is fast making a name for himself as a Sonny Osborne protégé and a snappy dresser. He takes the music seriously without taking himself too seriously and his playing just makes you smile.”
