The music of the eclectic Kruger Brothers may range from bluegrass to jazz to even classical with their 2011 Appalachian Concerto, but this Swiss trio is firmly planted in the Americana roots category. Brothers Jens and Uwe Kruger teamed with American bassist Joel Landsberg in Switzerland in 1995, and the threesome have been making sweet music together ever since, releasing some 15 albums, including 2012's best-of collection and 2015's Lucid Dreamer. Jens Kruger is also known as one of the world's finest five-string banjo players and composers, whose work is considered both musically sophisticated and technically complex. Come hear them play live at The Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center. And to complete your Valentine's Day experience, the Melrose Poetry Bureau will be composing hand typed love notes in the lobby before the show.
