Experience Yodelling

Immerse yourself in the unique art of yodelling as performers showcase their impressive vocal range and melodic yodelling techniques, transporting you to the breathtaking landscapes of the Tyrolean mountains. A form of wordless singing, while yodelling appears in many cultures, it is mostly part of Swiss folk music. Musicians hold an extended single note and modulate it to ensure it fluctuates from the deep sound of the chest voice to the falsetto sound of the head voice.

About The Gundolf Family

Tyrolean Evening Show Innsbruck with the Gundolf Family

Pre-Tyrolean Folk Show

The Tyrolean Folk Show’s history is recent, but the foundations were laid back in the 18th century. Mountain farmer and passionate musician Franz Gundolf founded the first village brass band in Häselgehr in the Lech Valley/Tyrol in 1773, kickstarting a legacy that lives on today.

The Grandson

Franz’s grandson, Franz Paulo Gundolf, was born in 1869. He taught music to finance his studies during the day and performed in the guesthouse “Breinössl” in Innsbruck in the evening. He had eight children, each gifted with musical talent.

A Band Took Shape

Franz Paulo’s son Kurt built a music career. He was a bell founder and soloist on the Flügelhorn with the Innsbruck city brass band “Wiltener Stadtkapelle” for 25 years. He and his brothers Otto, Erich and Oskar formed the Gundolf band in 1950 and performed across Europe.

The Birth of the Tyrolean Folk Show

Kurt’s sons Franz, Konrad and Ernst formed the “Alpenbühne Geschwister Gundolf.” They performed with their father Kurt and sisters Fini and Edith as a family ensemble at the historical “Stiftskeller” in Innsbruck. Many singers, musicians, and dancers joined after the group’s success.
