German musicians are out standing in their field
9:30am Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
A FOLK band has begun its journey through Oxfordshire and is hoping strangers will offer them somewhere to stay.
German string band Ensemble Unterwegs is relying on the hospitality of strangers as they make their way to Oxford for a concert.
The four women, who arrived on Thursday, started their journey in Asthall, near Burford.
They have no money with them and no mobile phones – just essentials and their instruments.
Violinist Eva Hennevogl said they would be performing along the way on their five-day journey. She said: “We play out in nature, in pubs and houses, and in the streets.”
The 35-year-old from Frankfurt added: “We play for the people we meet and come together with people and find places to sleep — it is very spontaneous.”
The band will play a final concert as part of the Oxford Chamber Music Festival at St Michael at the North Gate Church on Tuesday from 7.30pm. Tickets cost £5. For more details call 01865 305305.
