Originally from Europe, now living in North Carolina, they were first introduced to American audiences in 1997 and quickly caught the attention of fans and the music industry alike. Switzerland's Kruger Brothers' banjo player Jens and guitarist Uwe have been celebrated throughout the world for their musicianship, clever composition and engaging stage presence. The Kruger Brothers were awarded a National Endowment for the Arts grant for Music from the Spring a symphonic suite composed and orchestrated by Jens Kruger, which premiered in 2007. In late 2010, the Kruger Brothers premiered the Appalachian Concerto, a concerto for banjo, bass, guitar, and string quartet. In addition to their regular concert schedule they perform these pieces regularly with select symphony orchestras and string quartets throughout the country. Composed in 2010, the Appalachian Concerto is a work for banjo, bass, guitar, and string quartet. Innovative, challenging, and beautiful, the piece takes the ensemble playing the Kruger Brothers are famous for to an entirely new level of musicianship. From the first notes to the last cadence, the piece celebrates Appalachia—the history, the landscape, and the culture— in a way that only the Kruger Brothers can. Some call them "Jazz". Some call them "Classical". Some call them "Bluegrass". They are all right. Experience what happens when these innovative and soulful world-class virtuosos put on a musical performance not to be forgotten.
