Welcome to the homepage of PAGO LIBRE

Since January 2012, we have a new member on double bass: Tom Götze. We performed several concerts around the new CD "FAKE FOLK".

The actual line-up: Arkady Shilkloper (horn, flugelhorn, alphorn), Tscho Theissing (violin), John Wolf Brennan (piano, melodica) and Tom Götze (bass, alphorn).

We continue to pursue the idea of “FAKE FOLK“, our own vision of an imaginative-imaginary folk music (» projects), also by paying tribute to one of the great pioneers of Swiss folk music, Alfred Leonz Gassmann (1876-1962).

May we kindly invite you to have a look at our cd-shop, where you can order all our CDs at a special rate.
