The Kruger Brothers are joined by The Kontras Quartet for a very special original work, commissioned to honor the region, history and legacy of Tennessee’s Roan Mountain.
The Roan Mountain Suite honors the 50th anniversary of the inaugural meeting to conserve the Roan, an effort initiated by the late Stanley A. Murray, husband of patron, Judy Murray, of Kingsport, TN. Dedicated to the memory of Stanley A. Murray, 1923-1990, The Roan Mountain Suite is a musical experience honoring the treasured landscape of the region.
Stan Murray was a 14-year Chairman of the Appalachian Trail Conference, a visionary and champion of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail and Highlands of Roan, and Founder of the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy. The Roan Mountain Suite is a vibrant new example of the Kruger Brothers’ brilliant ability to enlist the illustrative power of music to tell a story in eloquent detail.
“Roan Mountain resonates in a deep and personal way with all those who visit it, and by the same token, the Kruger Brothers’ music reaches into the hearts and souls of its listeners in profound and stirring ways.” ~ Judy Murray
