Thanks to Philip Zanon, president of Double Time Music, for a complete schedule of the forthcoming European tour by the Kruger Brothers (CH/USA), mentioned on the EBB on 23 Sept. 2012.

The tour begins on Sat. 3 Nov. with the Banjo Event 2012 at the Eagle Music Shop in Huddersfield, northern England.

Full details, with online booking facilities, are on the Banjo Event 2012 web page.

For all Swiss dates, the Brothers are joined by special guest Josh Day (drums and percussion), who has performed with the Kruger Brothers many times and has been their #1 choice for their classical collaboration works. He has also recorded with them, most recently on 'People get ready', the bonus track of their latest release, Best of the Kruger Brothers.
