You've never heard a brother duet like this before. Swiss-born brothers Jens and Uwe KrÃ¼ger on banjo and guitar, along with bassist Joel Landsberg (who they say has become just like another brother), take traditional American folk and bluegrass music in an amazing new direction. On a traditional tune, they're absolutely unmatched for speed. Their original numbers blend virtuosity and originality with a sort of wide-eyed appreciation for the beauty of Appalachian music and culture. The brothers are from Switzerland, and they performed around Europe for 20 years. In 2003 they moved permanently to North Carolina. Kruger Brothers performances are exciting, calming, entertaining and spontaneous, reflecting their sheer joy in playing music. The Kruger Brothers' musical style really defies definition, encompassing all styles of music through their personal individual development, classical European musical influences, and love of the American spirit. The Kruger Brothers come to Michigan with a new release, "Spirit of the Mountains," which they describe as "a poetic, spiraling tale about ghosts, relationships and guides–both seen and unseen. It is a story about love, spiritual legacy, the sharing of beauty, and the yearning for freedom from the restrictions of the mind."
