- Events at Boothbay Harbor, Maine
In an ever expanding body of work, Jens Kruger (banjo, vocals), Uwe Kruger (guitar, lead vocals) and Joel Landsberg (bass, vocals) personify the spirit of exploration and innovation that forms the core of the American musical tradition. Originally from Switzerland, the Kruger brothers began playing North American folk music at an early age and were particularly inspired by the recordings of Doc Watson, Flatt and Scruggs, and Bill Monroe. In the days since, even Doc Watson has said “the Kruger Brothers are just about as fine a band as I’ve ever played with, I love to play with them.” The Bluegrass Journal calls them “nothing short of magnificent.” Nashville Public Radio has called them “one of the most creative, spiritually minded, musically gifted, soul enriching and life affirming bands to ever come down the pike. They give new meaning to the phrase ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.’” Don’t miss this evening of unforgettable music at the Opera House. Advance tickets $15, day of show $20. Box Office 633-5159. Show at 8 pm, doors for seating open at 7:30 pm. For more information on the group visit krugerbrothers.com.
