BIOGRAPHY

Jakob Steinkellner is an accordionist, styrian harmonica player, composer and unconventional artist. Within his concerts all over the globe, he puts his instruments, above all, the diatonic harmonica, in an unusually concert light. Especially in his experimental compositions, the artist uses unmistakable, traditional sound patterns of alpine folk music, combines them with modern sounds or rhythms and pushes them to the limit with a certain lightness, colorful influences from the most diverse world music, extravagant joy of playing and also on an instrumental level. 

Steinkellner already toured in countries like Austria, Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, England, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia, Ukraine, Israel, Tanzania, Peru, Canada and others. At his concerts you can expect border-crossing creative journeys with eloquent and musical wit, artistic sophistication as well as virtuosity, stylistic diversity, and a musical space to dive into different emotional worlds.
