The Kruger Brothers at the Harvester Performance Center
450 Franklin Street
Rocky Mount, Virginia 24151
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.
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 Brothers personify the spirit of exploration and innovation that forms the core of the American musical tradition. In addition to their regular concert schedules, The Kruger Brothers perform these classical pieces regularly with select symphony orchestras and string quartets throughout the country. Their powerful artistic statement continues to inspire and enlighten audiences and musicians around the world.
