Singing Austrian Folk Songs with Traudl in Boulder / Colorado, November 2011




The Traxl-family, owners of the Hotel Maiensee in Sankt Christoph (Arlberg) invited our Viennese swing quartet (Hartwig-Eitler-Quartet) to play some apres-ski jazz at their 4-star hotel.  Heidi Adiar, a trained opera singer from the USA and at the time living in Sankt Anton am Arlberg, joined in with some vocals. Her husband Bo Adair recorded.

Having helped to finance the Jazz-Fest Baden at the Trabrennbahn Baden in September 2013 has resulted in the award of the Kaiser-Friedrich-Medal by the mayor of the city of Baden. Habsburg-emperor Kaiser Friedrich III elevated Baden to the status of „City“ in 1480, and the medal in his name rewards achievements in the arts.
