Music of the Germanic Lands

From sailing songs of the North Sea to yodel music of the Alps, and from the Rhine to Vienna, David presents music from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Drawing on his experience of three years living in Switzerland and a bachelor’s degree in German, David sings folk songs and demonstrates the history of traditional German music on various instruments, including the accordion, autoharp (chorded zither), hammered dulcimer and others. Audiences hear stories and songs, in both German and English, describing the history and culture of Germanic lands.
