Hubert von Goisern has been performing on stages across Europe for more than 25 years – as a musical ambassador for Austria, a renewer and revitalizer of folk music, someone who breathes new life into tradition, and an individualist. His latest album Federn was the result of musical expeditions to the southern states of the USA, where Hubert von Goisern soaked up the musical heritage, the blues, country, jazz and Zydeco to be found among the swamps of Louisiana and in the home of country music, Nashville, Tennessee. These rhythms and sounds didn’t need to be cobbled together, they fit like a glove with Hubert’s Austrian sound – as if there had never been any other way. More information:
