Salzburger Echo brings the Alps to their audiences, playing Old World and contemporary folk music from the alpine regions of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. They continue to amaze audiences with their twelve-foot alphorns, Swiss cowbells, holzernes g'ächter, and harmony yodeling. Together since 1992, Salzburger Echo has played many venues and festivals throughout the United States and Europe. They are one of the most sought after Alpine bands in the nation. Festivals such as Oktoberfest (Mt. Angel, Oregon); Snowbird's Annual Oktoberfest (Snowbird, Utah); Las Vegas Oktoberfest at the Historic 5th Street School (Las Vegas, Nevada); Ruidoso Oktoberfest (Ruidoso, New Mexico); and Oktoberfest at Snake River Brewing (Jackson Hole, Wyoming) invite Salzburger Echo to perform year after year because of their high-energy showmanship, their outstanding musicianship, and their cunning wit.
Salzburger Echo also delivers an engaging educational program for grades K-12 and is certified by ARTS inc. (formerly Young Audiences Inc. of Utah). From backyard parties to live TV and radio performances in Europe, and practically every venue between; Salzburger Echo is the perfect group for all of your festival, party, and concert needs. Gunther Zellinger, accordion instructor and official representative of Hof, Germany was stunned by the musicianship and outright flair of the 2000 Hof Germanfest in Ogden, Utah. He stated: "You know, in Germany there are some 3,500 accordion orchestras, and I tell you, these Salzburger Echo guys are right up there with the best of them".
