Originally from Switzerland, the brothers Uwe and Jens Kruger began playing North American folk music at an early age and were inspired by recordings of Doc Watson, Flatt and Scruggs, and other prominent country, bluegrass and folk music. They teamed up with American bass player Joel Landsberg and the trio has been playing professionally since 1995.
Although they are firmly rooted in America folk music genres, Kruger Brothers have most recently ventured into the themes and forms of classical music. The group is highly regarded within the world of acoustic music, particularly those in the industry. In 2011, Jens Kruger was cited for induction into the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame in the category of Regional Musician. Their 2011 release, Appalachian Concerto, pairs the Kruger Brothers with a stringed quartet and the project was met with tremendous critical acclaim.
