Presents the music and folklore of the alps!
With authentic instruments, singing and yodeling, here is alpine music the way it was meant to be played – the way it is played today in the rustic inns and the mountain chalets of Bavaria, the Tyrol, Styria, and throughout the alps!
Button accordion, hammered dulcimer, zither, bass and guitar combine to give AlpenFolk its unmistakable, irresistible alpine sound.
Exciting, interactive program. Perfect for festivals, theme events. Fun for any audience. Ask about our multimedia “Spirit of the Alps” option!

is a not-for-profit folk dance organization dedicated to promoting Bavarian folk dancing and costumes. Enzian performs regional dances from Bavaria (Germany) and Tirol (Austria), including traditional Schuhplattler and folk dances.
“Schuhplattler” is a centuries-old Bavarian dance genre in which the men demonstrate their vigor in a raucous but precise “shoe-slapping” rhythm to folk music, alternating with flirtatious figures danced with the women. This dance form has evolved over the last 300 years.
