Last year, The Kruger Brothers premiered their stunning new concerto, Lucid Dreamer, to a capacity crowd at IBMA’s Wide Open Bluegrass, presented by PNC. This year, they will be part of that festival again with a set at the Red Hat Amphitheater, but in the new year, you have the opportunity to see them perform in Raleigh’s intimate Fletcher Theater. Brothers Jens and Uwe Kruger were born and raised in Europe, but they were so influenced by American music, particularly the music of North Carolina’s Doc Watson, that they moved to the U.S. in 2002 and now make their home in Wilkesboro. Along with bass player Joel Landsberg, a native of New York City who had an extensive musical upbringing in classical and jazz music, they formed a trio that has been playing professionally together for two decades. Their virtuoso playing combined with their interactions with each other and with their audience makes every concert a unique experience. And their original music, composed by Jens Kruger (Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame inductee and 2013 recipient of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Bluegrass & Banjo Music), draws on a rich cultural palette, celebrating the best of what music can be: exciting, engaging, intelligent, and delightful.
