Ausseer Steier Workshop Video Available Online

At the 2017 Gaufest in Buffalo, the Volksmusik Committee sponsored a great workshop: the Ausseer Steierischer. It was a 3-part workshop taught by Adam Levine and Eric Ray. Part I was Wirtshausliada.This session introduced a typical Gstanzl (song verses) sung during a traditional Landler from the Salzkammergut region of Austria. Part II was a Pascher Workshop. This linked basic Pascher (clapping) patterns and applied them with the Wirtshauslied learned earlier. Part III added a Volkstanz to the mix and then put them all together for the Ausseer Steirer.
