About The Schürzenjäger

The Schürzenjäger was one of the most successful bands in Austria and Germany, and made a name for themselves early on for their straightforward volksmusik (folk music). By incorporating elements of rock and pop, to international acclaim, they became one of the best known acts in the European music scene. At the height of their appeal, they became UNHCR Goodwill Ambassadors in 1998 and helped raise awareness of refugee issues among their global audience. The band folded in 2007.
