have been used as a form of folk music performed by shepherds
for centuries. We also have a set of cowbells that we have had
mounted on a brace and play as a cowbell xylophone. This is a
new twist to an old folk art.
Holzanes G'Lächter (wooden laughter) is a member of the xylophone
family. This instrument can be found only in Austria and southern
these unique instruments, you can see the accordion, tuba and
all the other essentials that sound as authentic as if you were
in the Alps.
Audience participation is an important part of the show with singing,
dancing, swinging back and forth with the music and performing
songs with the band. Everyone always enjoys the "Chicken Dance"
and other fun novelty songs. Find the website under: www.alpenfest.com
