The first tunes appeared in the year 2010 when Gina and Lennart (founder member and formerly guitarplayer) began to make music together. But recently as Peter moved back nearby in 2012, the idea developped into the Folkband Waldkauz.
Melodies and harmonies turned into songs, which were played on stage for the first time in year 2013.
At the start of 2014 the journeys of Waldkauz united with those of Nina and Niklas.
Fate wanted them to meet at Castlefest in the Netherlands –far away from home- to get to know each other. And to find out that they lived all the time nearby.
Since then the rehearsal room filled up and also the sound became wider and deeper.
Together they play concerts at festivals and medieval fairs throughout Germany.
In march 2015 they released their first album „Komm mit“. During the summer 2016 guitarplayert Lennart let the band.. This april the second album „MYTHOS“ will be released.
Songs about ancient magic, the wisdom of nature and the ecstasy of dance. Energetic and wild at
some times but also spherical and dreamy are the sounds rolling of the stage.
But yet the binding theme of old myths and legends remains, their power and secret reverberating in
the music of the band to this day.
That is WALDKAUZ.
On historic and modern instruments they combine their own compositions with influences from
european folk-music. Danceable rhythms intertwine with catchy melodies and arrangements for up
to three voices enchant the audience.
In 2018 WALDKAUZ look back to a five year experience as a touring and performing band,
nationally and internationally. Among past events and festivals are Wacken Open Air, Wave Gotik
Treffen and Autumn Moon Festival. The band also won the newcomer award of the renowned
Festival Mediaval and played many events at the Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum (MPS), the
worlds largest traveling Medieval Fair.
In march 2015 the band released their first full-length album "Komm' mit" to critical acclaim.
In the spring of 2017 they released their sophomore album "Mythos" and made a huge leap forward.
A more refined and extensive production resulted in even more attention from press and listeners in
