Krüger Brothers

Jens (on guitar) and Uwe (on banjo) Krüger are two of the most accomplished acoustic musicians living in Switzerland today. Their career began back in 1971, and they have performed professionally since 1979, covering a wide range of styles but specializing in bluegrass and traditional folk music. Two decades after they started, the Krügers teamed up with New York bassist Joel Landsberg, who has become just like another brother.

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 brothers’ time. They also enjoy writing, recording, and teaching.
