Biography

Since 1998 Doppelbock discover Swiss Folk music in a new light. Ten years of many different and diverse musical developments, with one everlasting consistant of altercation with musical tradition. The NZZ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) calls them "one of the most important renovators of folk music" and they also write: "There's the rub with Swiss folk music. Purists conserve it with absolute seriousness, populists overmix it to a poppy mix of vaudeville and sing-sang. There seems to be close to no space in between these extremes for those musicians, who want to take tradition out of its closed valleys to vitalize it with today's modern life." Yet Doppelbock try exactly to do this with as much tact as the music deserves."
