The multi-instrumentalist leaves his listeners almost breathless after every concert! 

The "Herbert Pixner Project", four thoroughbred musicians and currently one of the most successful and hip acts in the field of "progressive folk music", inspire with extraordinary original compositions and breathtaking improvisations. 

Their music, alpine world music without cultural arbitrariness with peak-high musicality - a musical firework of traditional alpine music, flamenco, gypsy jazz, blues, rock and world music. 

The exceptional musicians Herbert Pixner (diatonic harmonica, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, percussion), Manuel Randi (flamenco guitar, electric guitar, gypsy guitar), Heidi Pixner (harp) and Werner Unterlercher (double bass) with their unconventional line-up build musical bridges between their remote Tyrolean home regions with playful and lascivious gentleness, massive rock and blues riffs, brilliant technique and enormous joy of playing; 

With euphoria, energy, tension, a lot of free improvisation and most recently with a sophisticated stage show on tour: This is the mixture with which the "Herbert Pixner Project" electrifies and inspires the audience.
