Fine example of traditional “Swiss German” instrumental music. Brings back memories of being in the company canteen in Switzerland at around 6:30 AM for breakfast and hearing this sort of music from the radio being played over the sound system. Good music to wake up to!

The legendary Echo vom Kinzig trio with Josef Imholz, Max Gisler und Walter Gerig enjoyed enormous success in Switzerland and much further afield for something like 60 years.

I remember reading that Walter Gerig, the bass player celebrated his 80th birthday in February 2010

The wonderful pictures in the video are from the Eggberge area in Canton Uri, Central Switzerland.
