This group’s music swings both “country” and “western”, without sounding like what most people associate with the term “country & western”. Landscapes and western films served as the basis behind the project Under Western Skies.

But not to relay tales of cowboys and Indians, buffalo herds, wagon trains, and pioneers making farms out of wilderness. Under Western Skies instead musically projects the dream of open spaces and mythic distances and all their various possibilities.

line up:
Herwig Gradischnig (saxes, b-cl)
Frank Schwinn (guitars, loops, electronics)
Herbert Pirker (dr, perc)
