The Kruger Brothers will release a remarkable new project during MerleFest 2017 and will share the Roan Mountain Suite through a live stream, hosted on Facebook.
The Roan Mountain Suite is the 5th commission granted to composer Jens Kruger and the Kruger Brothers trio. The project coincides with the 50th anniversary of the inaugural meeting to conserve the Roan, an effort initiated by the late Stanley A. Murray, husband of patron, Judy Murray, of Kingsport, TN.
The trio has become world renowned for their unique classically-infused folk/acoustic music. Characteristically, this latest original work combines elements of classical, chamber music, folk, jazz and bluegrass. It was commissioned to honor the region, history and legacy of Tennessee’s Roan Mountain. The Kruger Brothers are joined on the album by The Kontras Quartet.
