On-Mountain Folk Music
Alpine region Hochoetz
Wonderful summer season opening event presented by Ötztal Tourismus, Bergbahnen Oetz and Tanzlmusig Sautens: welcome to the 8th edition of On-Mountain Folk Music. Seevarl folk music bands play live concerts at varied mountain huts and at the Hochoetz Panorama Restaurant. Great music and entertainment program for all ages! Folk musicians are also invited to join the festival themselves.
Folk Dance guided by "Sautner Tanzlmusig"
Both folk music and folk dance are deeply rooted in Tirol's tradition. The "Arbeitsgemeinschaft Volkstanz Tirol" association has been successfully promoting and reviving traditional music, songs, dances and costumes. Shining examples are the "May Dance" or the "Kathrein Dance" - ancient folk dances with a long history in Tirol. Further dances are "Jägermarsch", "Knödeldrahner" or "Zillertaler Landler".
The entertaining "Sautner Tanzlmusig" has a huge repertoire of almost forgotten folk dances. They perform some of the highlights together with the dancers of Niederthai's traditional costume club - and all guests are warmly invited to join in! What's best, the dances are not that difficult and all visitors can learn them within a short time under the guidance of local folk dance experts.
This event takes place in all weather.
