ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Kruger Brothers from Switzerland have been performing professionally since 1973. Almost twenty years later, after playing together in various formations throughout Europe, Uwe Kruger on guitar, and Jens Kruger on banjo, teamed up with bassist Joel Landsberg to form the band as it appears on stage today.

Kruger Brothers performances are exciting, calming, entertaining and spontaneous all-in-one, exhibiting their sheer joy in playing music. Although each of these musicians has earned high credit for his skills individually, it is the interaction of the three together which makes their music so uniquely special.

Traditional American Folk and Bluegrass music would come closest to describing the bands' style of playing. Add to that their personal musical development, along with their Classical European musical influences, and you have acoustic string music performed with a rich new flavor. Over time the Kruger Brothers have been incorporation many of their original compositions which have become the signature of the band. It's a fresh kind of music, many fans describe their style.

The musical skills have lead to the world premiere performance of "Music from the Spring" - A Romantic Serenade for Banjo, Guitar, Bass and Orchestra together with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra in Bangor ME in June 2007. Besides this exciting entry to the classical music world, the Kruger Brothers are appearing regularly at festivals, Art Councils and Theater concerts since moving to North Carolina permanently in 2003.

The Kruger Brothers are:

Uwe Kruger - Guitar and lead vocals, Born 1961, raised in Switzerland.
Jens Kruger - Banjo and harmony vocals, born 1962, raised in Switzerland.
Joel Landsberg - Bass and harmony vocals, born 1959, raised in New York.

It was a very warm summer evening, and I was with my daughter and husband in Rochester, Vermont in an enormous barn filled with people. The music created intimacy, filling the space, drawing us closer to each other and to the musicians. They captivated us. I have bought two Choices and will be trying more of the Kruger Brothers\' music.

Nothing like the kruger brothers get's your life blood flowing. Choices is only one example of these extra ordinary artists at work. If you are a music lover you will enjoy every note of these highly talented and virtuous musicians.

The band in general!
I first experienced the Kruger Brothers at Greyfox Bluegrass Festival in Ancramdale, NY about 8 years ago and they amazed me from the start! I listen almost exclusively to bluegrass type music and I am more impressed with them as a band than about anyone. Jens and Uwe are incredible musicians and Joes is certainly quite good at the bass as well! This band has more presence than many 5 piece bluegrass bands. I highly recommend this album. It's fairly laid back, but exceptionally done!

I've currently purchased all 4 of the Kruger Brothers CDs after seeing them "In the PInes". The banjo, bass and guitar are so well played and artistically played together. And the singing is good too. I essentially listen to nothing else. I highly recommend all of their music.

As a DJ since 1966...I'm picky. I'll pick these guys anytime...polished professionals. We're doing an album feature with them on WBTX, Broadway, VA.

The only thing better than listening to this album is hearing them in concert. I send their CD's to my favorite people.
