Originally from Switzerland, The Kruger Brothers' members Uwe Kruger and Jen Krugers relocated to USA, where they started performing North American folk music in their early phase. During this time they were particularly fascinated with the recordings of Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, Doc Watson and other prominent figures from country, folk and bluegrass genres back then. The band's first public appearance came as a duo, while walking down the streets of several cities across western and eastern Europe. After signing a recording contract along with a radio show on SSR SRG, Swiss Public broadcaster, the artists brought in bass player Joel Landberg and debuted as a trio that has now been performing professionally for over almost two decades. The group's first recording project as a trio was called Behind the Barn, Vol. 2, released in 1997. At the start of their career, The band stayed quite close to the traditional repertoire, later turning to song composition and writing from personal experiences in order to let the material reflect who they really are. What resulted was a colorful string of songs that were distinct owing to their wealth of details and profound insight into the complexity and delicacy of day to day life. Another distinctive aspect of their music is the composition and banjo-playing of Jens Kruger; the latter plays a melodic style which, although is rooted in the three-finger method popularized by Earl Scruggs and Snuffy Jenkins, also stands apart due to its lengthy melodic passages alongside intricate compositional styles.

Through this piece, the Krugers have highlighted the textual sound spectrum of banjos as unique solo instruments, while also showcasing Jen Kruger's extraordinary skills as an arranger and composer.
