      I have only been watching Concert Window for a few weeks and just ran across the Kruger Brothers tonight and was blown away by the talent. Great playing and banjo, guitar and bass compositions like I have never heard before. totally enjoyed it and will be looking for more from the group. thanks Concert Window

      Wonderful music, excellent rapport with the audience, high-quality audio and video. The only improvement would have been occasional closeups to show their prodigious technique. I'll definitely get tickets for future performances.

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 abiding musical influences. The brothers were performing regularly by the time they were 11 and 12 years old, and they began their professional career in 1979. Joel Landsberg, a native of New York City who also had an ex­tensive musical upbringing, joined the brothers in the early 90s and together they established the incomparable sound that the trio is known for today.

Jens Kruger is the 2013 Winner of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. In the New York TImes, Mr. Martin praised Mr. Kruger in a telephone interview as “one of the great technicians” of bluegrass as well as “a very emotional player.”
