New album: Ruf der Provinz (March 3rd 2017, Kursaal)
All it takes is a few beats to make it impossible to disguise the origin of the indie folk orchestra Von Weiden. It is safe to say that a band who calls their latest work ‘Ruf der Provinz’ (March 3rd 2017, engl.: Call of the Province) doesn’t plan on doing that anyway though. Von Weiden turns traditional into modern and at the latest at their captivating concerts it becomes apparent that the band’s music works everywhere.
Von Weiden makes pictures of provincial sceneries come to life but only superficially provides the soundtrack of country life. Humble, open-minded and brimming over with the joy of playing, they play with country stereotypes without ever letting their lyrics dwindle into nostalgic platitudes. What happens on stage is highly contagious and danceable. The lady and her gentlemen from the border region between North Rhine-Westfalia and Lower Saxony want to dance, drink, sing and go completely crazy with their audience. From polka to slightly punky rock’n’roll, the stings, winds and percussion instruments are being tested out and combined in a way that guarantees fun!
Von Weiden’s unique sound is well received – at provincial festivals as well as at clubs such as the Forum in Bielefeld (GER) where their album release party was hosted. As soon as the band starts rocking the stage with their polka beat, the audience starts singing and celebrating with them. Their new album ‘Ruf der Provinz’ is simultaneously the debut of the indie label Kursaal, which may be newly founded but has years of music industry experience behind it. Together they want to prove a point nationwide: Von Weiden may be the last one of their kind but also the first and only ones.
‘Such carefully piled up indie folk hymns are written best while staring into the distance. […] Fantastic songs with picturesque lyrics.’ – Intro
‘There’s no doubt that the band, formerly known as Crystal Pasture, around songwriter Henning Kreft is brimming over with charm.’ – Folker
