Jazz. Classical. Bluegrass. The music of the Kruger Brothers is all of that and more, as they celebrate the best of what music can be: exciting, engaging, intelligent, and delightful.
Now living in North Carolina, brothers Jens and Uwe were born and raised in Europe, and starting performing when they were 11 and 12. Joel Landsberg, a native of NYC, joined the brothers in the early 90s. Jens Kruger (banjo, vocals), Uwe Kruger (guitar, lead vocals), and Joel Landsberg (bass, vocals) personify the spirit of exploration and innovation that forms the core of the American musical tradition.
The late Bluegrass legend Doc Watson said, “The Kruger Brothers are just about as fine a band as I’ve ever played with.”
The Kruger Brothers will perform Saturday, September 22, at 6 p.m., as part of the Street Music on Paris Avenue free concert series, a gift from the Town of Port Royal and produced by ARTworks. All the concerts are free, just bring your chairs and dancing shoes. The rain location will be at The Shed, adjacent to the street venue, in Port Royal.
