The Kruger Brothers return to the stage of the Ashe Civic Center for two concerts on March 2 & 3! Reserved seating tickets are available in advance for both performances. Brothers Jens and Uwe Kruger and Joel Landsberg have delighted audiences everywhere with their unique sound that has made them a fixture in the world of acoustic music. The trio is unpretentious, cultivated, and delightfully fresh.
Originally from Switzerland, 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, Bill Monroe, and other progenitors of country, bluegrass and folk music. Their first public performances were as a duo, busking on the streets of cities throughout eastern and Western Europe. After gaining a recording contract as well as a radio show on SRG SSR, the Swiss public broadcaster, they teamed up with bass player Joel Landsberg, inaugurating a trio that has been playing professionally together since 1995. Landsberg is an American citizen from New York, NY. The Kruger Brothers moved to the United States in 2002, and are based in Wilkesboro, NC.
