THE ÜBERLAND ORCHESTRA in 2007
Just a quick word about me....
For those of you who don't know me yet, I'd like to tell you a bit about my music. I'm hooked on guitars and any related instruments like dobros, lap steels, mandolins and anything else with strings.
My music has developed over the years and, fortunately, can't be pigeonholed into any of the usual categories.
You can listen to samples from all my CDs in the discography.
THE ÜBERLAND ORCHESTRA PROJECT
2007 was an extremely enjoyable and successful year, with the début of "Überland Duo+" and around 20 full-band concerts. Now we are recording the Überland Orchestra's first CD, consisting mainly of compositions by various members of our band, and adaptations of traditional Swiss melodies. This is also your first opportunity to enjoy our concert program again in the comfort of your own home.
PROJECTS FOR 2008
Only a few concerts are planned this year (see Concert Calendar). We want to give ourselves the necessary space for project work and turn some quite special ideas into reality. For example, we are going to be accompanied by the Alsatian violinist Mathias Hecklen and the Austrian percussionist Bernd Bechtloff, with whom I have played in Hubert von Goisern's band. We also want to carry out some exceptional plans at exceptional venues - such as Miami, South Africa or Baden. Keep an eye on us - Überland is off to pastures new!
PROJECTS FOR 2009
Coinciding with release of our CD (plus DVD insert with concert excerpts), we are planning an extended tour for February/March 2009, which is sure to offer a few more surprises.
