Bluegrass—Kentucky’s contribution to music—performed by a Swiss duo on a Kentucky stage? This heady mixture of styles and accents takes the Jubilee stage with Switzerland’s Krüger Brothers.

Jens and Uwe Krüger are two of the most accomplished acoustic musicians living in Switzerland today. Their career began back in 1973, and they have been performing professionally since 1979. They cover a wide range of styles but specialize in bluegrass and traditional folk music.

Regular appearances on Switzerland’s National TV and Radio (where they had their own show for more than three years), extensive touring throughout Europe, and headlining gigs at some of the most prestigious festivals in the Old World consume the bulk of the Krügers’ time. But they also enjoy writing, recording, and teaching.
