In 1995, Uwe (guitar) and Jens (banjo) teamed up with bass player Joel Landsberg, inaugurating a trio that has played professionally ever since. Together, they established an incomparable sound regarded as unpretentious, cultivated and delightfully fresh. In their ever-expanding body of work, numerous releases, performances and collaborative efforts, the Kruger Brothers powerful artistic statement inspires and enlightens audiences and musicians around the world.
