Liab’ und Schneid - Live Alpine Energy!
Discover the Fun of Authentic German Alpine Music from Austria and Bavaria

Come listen to us every Wednesday night from 6 to 9 PM, at Old Europe Restaurant, DC's premier German restaurant, located at 2434 Wisconsin Avenue, Washington DC. You may want to call ahead to make sure you have a reservation in case it's full (202-333-7600). And on every third Wednesday of the month, Old Europe hosts a fun German style "Stammtisch" with favorite German songs--Make sure you don't miss out!

Also: in the Summer months and throughout Oktoberfest, we will be playing at Biergarten Haus in DC (1355 H St. NE) on most Friday and Saturday nights!

Liab’ und Schneid is the Mid-Atlantic’s premier duo for authentic German Alpine Music (echte Volksmusik), the traditional entertainment and dance music of the mountains of Austria, Bavaria and South Tyrol.

The key to our success: bringing you the energy of the music Alpine “locals” listen and dance to, spiced up with some Oberkrainer pieces and popular hits in the German Volksmusik tradition.

We are trained European-born musicians performing on several traditional German Alpine instruments. Our standard duo is Steirische accordion and Classical guitar, but we also perform on other instruments such as Zither, Raffele, Strohfidel, Gemshorn and others. We play traditional, high-energy dances like the Polka, Boarischer, Landler, Waltz, and more, and sing traditional songs and Yodels--plus a number of Oktoberfest favorites.

This has made us a popular duo with cultural events, German restaurants, private parties, Oktoberfests and other venues in DC, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, the Carolinas and more. No place is too far if we are available. Also, we will work with you to accommodate your budget needs.

"Elisabeth and Tom are first rate people and musicians, and there is nothing better than a night of yodels!"
