Florianer Tanzlgeiga at the Gipfelklänge 2013

Florianer Tanzlgeiga playing in Mostviertel, Austria

At the end of a long day of hiking we listened to the Florianer Tanzlgeiga sitting inside an inn and having some pigling for dinner. The group played pretty lively so some guests started to dance spontaneously.

The Floriani Tanzlgeiga offered an interesting mix of music. They played classic pieces as well as local ballads. The ladies sung the local songs in a broad dialect which made the event even more cosy.
