About the event

Join us in celebrating the Kruger Brothers premiere Cape Cod performance here at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod.

Born and raised in Europe, brothers Jens and Uwe Kruger started singing and playing instruments at a very young age. The brothers grew up in a family where music was an important part of life and they were exposed to a wide diversity of musical influences. By the time they were eleven and twelve years old, the brothers were performing regularly. They began their professional careers in 1979. Jens and Uwe’s first public performances were as a duo, and in just a few years, they were busking on the streets of cities throughout Eastern and Western Europe. CBS Records contracted with Jens and Uwe when Jens was just seventeen years old, and shortly thereafter, the Krugers hosted a radio show on SRG SSR, the Swiss Public broadcast group. Several years later, the brothers teamed up with bass player Joel Landsberg, a native of New York City who also had a very extensive musical upbringing in classical and jazz music (studying with jazz great Milt Hinton), thus forming a trio that has been playing professionally together since 1995. Together, they established the incomparable sound that the Kruger Brothers are known for today. The trio moved to the United States in 2002 and is based in Wilkesboro, NC. The Kruger Brothers won Steve Martin’s Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass Music in 2013, and along with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, won the National Endowment for the Arts Access to Artistic Excellence in 2007. Since their formal introduction to American audiences in 1997, the Kruger Brothers’ remarkable discipline, creativity, and ability to infuse classical music into folk music has resulted in a unique sound that has made them a fixture within the world of acoustic music. The honesty of their writing has since become a hallmark of the trio’s work. In their ever-expanding body of work – Jens Kruger (banjo and vocals), Uwe Kruger (guitar and lead vocals), and Joel Landsberg (bass and vocals) – the Kruger Brothers personify the spirit of exploration and innovation that forms the core of the American musical tradition. Their original music is crafted around their discerning taste, and the result is unpretentious, cultivated, and delightfully fresh.
