Kruger Brothers

Fri November 2, 2018 @ 7:30 pm

$25

Delightful, Swiss-born Jens (banjo, vocals) and Uwe Kruger (guitar, lead vocals) have been singing and playing American folk almost as long as they’ve been brothers. Growing up in a musical family, the two were performing regularly by the time they were eleven and twelve which eventually led them to busking on the streets of eastern and western European cities. CBS Records was the first to sign the teenage brothers which launched them on to host a radio show for a Swiss Public broadcasting group. It was in 1995 that the duo picked up New York bassist Joel Landsberg who put classical and jazz into the mix. The next thing you knew, the trio packed up their bags and moved to the heart of roots music country—North Carolina, USA.

Since solidifying the band and arriving together in America, the Kruger Brothers have infused their folk music with classical and jazz, creating a sound that celebrates the innovation and creativity that coaxed roots music into existance. Together they’ve put out seventeen albums that not only illustrate their dedication to Americana, but also delve into the world of classical collaboration, most notably with their latest release alongside the Kontras Quartet, Roan Mountain Suite. The Suite was commissioned to honor the 50th anniversary of the inaugural meeting to conserve the Roan, a 5 mile ridge along the North Carolina and Tennessee border.

Lee Zimmermann of “No Depression” wrote of the Suite, “The music they make is a tribute to the very idea that indeed America is a melting pot and the sounds that were birthed from the heartland find a universal touchstone.”
