After many years of separate paths Töbi Tobler and Ficht Tanner joined together again. With their “Appenzeller Space Schöttl”, they already influenced the Swiss music scene in the eighties, and are now regarded as pioneers of the new Swiss volkmusik. A witness of that time is the outdated CD “Herbstimprovisationen” and the LP “Appenzeller Space Schöttl”.
From the beginning the two musicians used the authenticity of their own musical language. The repertoire consisted, on the one hand, of traditional Appenzell music and, on the other, of freely improvised music. This resulted in the development of own pieces and stories over the course of time.
