Born and raised in Europe, brothers Jens and Uwe Kruger started singing and playing instruments at a
very young age. Growing up in a family where music was an important part of life, they were exposed to
a wide diversity of musical influences. The brothers were performing regularly by the time they were
eleven and twelve years old, and they began their professional career 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.

Since their formal introduction to American audiences in 1997, The Kruger Brothers’ remarkable
discipline, creativity and their 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.
