Uwe Kruger grew up singing old German folks songs with family in Switzerland. Picking up the guitar at eight years old, he later played with his brother, Jens, on street corners. His love of country and bluegrass music developed while listening to military radio stations as a kid. Uwe has always felt a strong connection with Bluegrass music and the stories that they tell. Once he moved to the United States, he started to feel like he was becoming a true musician and learned so much playing with artists like Doc Watson and Tut Taylor.
