Brothers Jens and Uwe Krüger grew up in rural Switzerland, listening to records by North Carolina music legends Doc Watson and Earl Scruggs. They fell in love with the sound and mastered the music, playing with bassist Joel Landsberg. Now the Krugers make their home in the Blue Ridge Mountains, playing and touring and teaching younger students.

In this episode, a bluegrass legend meets an up and coming regional act, a punk rocker of days gone by finally gets his solo debut, roots music stars mingle with Americana expatriates, and DJ For A Day returns, this time talking with Molly Kummerle of the band Paper Tiger about being a DJ -- not on the radio, but at a party, a “Molly Parti” to be exact. There’s also the Segue of The Week, which matches a lady Australian rocker with a post-punk classic.
