Smart Bets: Kruger Brothers

Siblings Jens (banjo, harmony vocals) and Uwe Kruger (guitar, lead and harmony vocals) began their musical career in their homeland of Switzerland, but since it was American folk music (specifically that of Doc Watson, Flatt and Scruggs and Bill Monroe) they were drawn to, the Krugers relocated to N.C. With native-New Yorker/brother-from-another-mother Joel Landsberg (bass, harmony vocals), the trio is complete. At this year's MerleFest, they released the 14-track Remembering Doc Watson. The Kruger Brothers perform at Isis on Wednesday and Thursday, June 12 and 13. 9 p.m., $25/$28.
