Kruger Brothers at Tryon Fine Arts Center
Tryon Fine Arts Center continues its tradition of bringing world-class music to the foothills of NC.
The Kruger Brothers gave an unforgettable performance to the sold out crowd on the evening of November 4th. They followed this with a Master Class on Saturday for all levels of stringed instrument musicians.
Experiencing their music live was a profound joy.
Listening to their insights and heart-felt words as I observed them teaching the Master Class opened up an entirely new perspective on music. I honestly will never listen to a melody in the same way again.
Jay had the great fortune of participating in the Master Class. Following the class Jens and Uwe took time to look at and to play two Lichty Guitars. They seemed genuinely impressed and we greatly appreciated their words of praise and support.
“[they are 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.’”
— Dave Higgs, “Bluegrass Breakdown,” Nashville Public Radio
“I’ve never been so moved as I was with Appalachian Concerto … The concerto invoked every joyous, breathless emotion one can have.”
— Larry Clark, “Appalachian Concert was a life experience,” Hickory Daily Record
“The Kruger Brothers are as likely be at a concert hall as they are local venues, but throughout they work to celebrate some of the things that make Carolina and its musical heritage so special. They give it a twist perhaps, but nevertheless remain true to a tradition that grows directly out of the music of this region, its history, and its people.”
“The Kruger Brothers: Coming Home,” Our State Magazine
“The Kruger Brothers are just about as fine a band as I’ve ever played with. … I love to play music with them.”
— Doc Watson
“The Krugers are nothing short of magnificent.”
— Bluegrass Journal
