The Blue Ridge Music Center and Yadkin Arts Council present the Sounds of the Mountains concert series each January. The Kruger Brothers are presenting the second performance in the three-show series. Tickets are $20.

Born and raised in Europe, brothers Jen and Uwe Kruger started singing and playing instruments at a very young age. They were performing regularly by the time they were eleven and twelve years old, and began their professional career in 1979. 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 Hilton), thus forming a trio that has been playing professionally together since 1995. Together, they established the incomparable sound the Kruger Brothers are known for today. Since their formal introduction to American audiences in 1997, their remarkable discipline, creativity and their ability to infuse classical music into folk music has resulted in a unique sound that has made the Kruger Brothers a fixture within the world of acoustic music. The honesty of their writing has since become a hallmark of the trio’s work.
