The Truth About Germany

The Truth About Germany: Volksmusik


Our roving reporter Michael Wigge who is always looking into the clichés that describe Germans this time takes a look at Germans' (supposed) love for folk music. It certainly is true that millions of Germans are glued to their TV sets when it comes to Folk Music shows like "Der Musikantenstadl" (six million viewers with a 20 per cent market share). And in 2006, 170 million euros worth of folk music albums were sold in Germany. Our reporter travels to Upper Swabia to check out the scene at the SWR-TV folk music show "Fröhlicher Feierabend".
