Kruger Brothers Concert

Well if you missed this concert, you missed alot.
The first half was from their repetoire including sympohonic tunes. Every note written down. The Tonal range of Jens is amazing. He plays mostly way up near the neck with his right hand to get a very full pure tone. Alot of his rolls sound like Bach fugeues or inventions. Uwe's flat picking guitar is superb and Joels bass just brings everything together.
The second half was pure jaming with Bobby Hicks on the fiddle. Bobby is 74 and his playing is crisp and intonation, perfect. A real treat
On banjo, Jens may not be the best but I sure don't know anyone who is better.
Next April they will be playing with the Punta Gorda Sympony in Charlotte County. Should be amazing.

..So...are the Kruger Brothers Bluegrass or Folk? I watched "Choices" posted on the home page and it sounded like the folk music played at Hootenannys in the late 60's in Louisiana. I think the rule is: to be Bluegrass it must have a Banjo, but not all Banjo music is Bluegrass, right So, what are they? By the way, I liked it!
