Is it appropriate to refer to The Kruger Brothers' gentle folk/ bluegrass hybrid as Americana, even if the trio actually hails from Switzerland? The ringing endorsement of Doc Watson—who had the band back him well before its move to North Carolina in 2003—should serve to resolve any doubts. "The Kruger Brothers are just about as fine a band as I've ever played with," said the elder statesman. As if they needed more credibility, banjoist Jens lived with and learned from Bill Monroe in the '80s, while guitarist brother Uwe developed a unique style that blends flatpicking with classical techniques. It doesn't sound much more authentic than this. —Spencer Griffith
