The music of The Kruger Brothers is a totally original blend of folk and classical music. Jens and Uwe Kruger grew up in Switzerland in a musical family. They began playing professionally with bassist Joel Landsberg , a native of New York City, in 1995 and relocated to the United States in 2002. Long time favorites at MerleFest, they settled in Wilkesboro, NC, and began collaborations with musicians as diverse as old-time, folk, and bluegrass to chamber music and orchestral styles. Their live performances are as varied as their collaborations and include original instrumental pieces which showcase inspiring technique as well as original tunes and old favorites delivered by Uwe’s mellow baritone voice. The Kruger Brothers will be joined by percussionist, Jody Call, at the Happy Valley Fiddlers Convention.
