Kruger Bros. return to Hayes Center
Born and raised in Switzerland, Jens and Uwe Kruger have been performing professionally since 1973.
After playing for 20 years throughout Europe in various styles and venues, Uwe on guitar and Jens on banjo, the brothers invited bassist Joel Landsberg to join them, and the three musicians formed the acoustic bluegrass trio audiences around the world know as the The Kruger Brothers.
On the heels of two previous sold-out concerts at the Hayes Center in Blowing Rock, the group returns by popular demand for another rousing performance on Saturday, Jan. 29, at 7:30 p.m. The concert is part of Blowing Rock Winterfest, a weekend filled with indoor and outdoor activities celebrating the fun side of winter.

The Kruger Brothers performances are hailed as exciting, calming, entertaining and spontaneous, reflecting their sheer joy in playing music.
"Their virtuoso playing combined with the manner in which they interact with each other and with their audience makes their music uniquely special," a Hayes Center spokesperson said.
"The Kruger Brothers' musical style defies definition, encompassing all styles of music through their personal individual development, classical European musical influences, and love of the American spirit. Combine it all together and the result is what can only be described as new American music."
The Hayes Performing Arts Center will present The Kruger Brothers for one night only on Jan. 29.
