The Kruger Brothers will return to the Blue Ridge Music Center on June 22 to present their bluegrass sound that incorporates classical and folk music from around the world. The old-time duo Chatham Rabbits will open the show.
Starting at 7 p.m., the concert will be held in the outdoor amphitheater at the base of Fisher Peak located at milepost 213 on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Galax, Va.
Originally from Switzerland, brothers, Jens and Uwe Kruger moved to Wilkesboro, in 2002 to be closer to their musical hero and friend, Doc Watson. Growing up in a musical family, Jens and Uwe started singing and playing instruments at a young age, and were exposed to diverse musical influences.
The husband and wife team of Austin and Sarah McCombie comprise the folk duo Chatham Rabbits. With Sarah on banjo and Austin on guitar, they are known for their tight harmonies on originals and old-time mountain songs.
Food and beverages will be for sale.
