6.jpgCastlefest 2019

Not a whole month left until Castlefest!
Throwback to last years crew







5.jpgThanks Sternenklang Festival

A beautiful castle, chilled atmosphere, great summerweather and a nice team including good organization. What more can you ask for? We would love to come back!
Thanks a lot to the whole team and especially Alex, for having us!

Next stop is our show with Schandmaul and the following medieval fair in Bassum near Bremen on the 26-28 July.

Until then we'll enjoy the sun and have some vacation.
What places will you visit this summer?






4.jpgAre you hot already?!

In ~1h we'll arrive at Sternenklang Festival. Stage time is 17.30 - 19h.
Who's with us??










1-2.jpgGrazie mille TRIESTE!

What a blast, so much energy and even a moshpit. You are crazy Triskell Celtic Festival!
We can't wait to be back.

We're still on the road somewhere in Germany right now and the heavy rain makes it difficult to realize the last few days between italian temperament, sunsunsun and Gelato.

We wish you all a (late) blessed midsummer by the way! Hope you had a magical shortest night ✨?
(we really missed our midsummer fire though)




2-2_.jpgBeautiful Italy

We arrived on the festival ground, checked out the stage (which is HUUUUGE) and now chill in the shadows, enjoying life, the hot temperatures and the chilled italian atmosphere.








1-1.jpgNiklas - saviour of baby birds!

What to do when you find a helpless birdie on your evening walk? Stay for the night, build up a tent, watch the mama feed it until it will be able to fly on its own?
We wish but placing the baby somewhere safe under the trees must be enough for today. Let's allow nature do her thing. And hopefully the little tit will fly away in a few days..

4.jpgWe have the duty to raise our voices for those who can't defend themselves.To stand up and fight for mother nature, for her beauty, to try and shield us from her anger and from the catastrophies that are sure to follow. For our fellow humans who live under harsh conditions. For empathy and community, for the good of all fluffy and non-fluffy animals, for the beaches and polar-bears, the whales and for the children in war-zones.

There are people who don't care about any of this. Now the time has come to stand against these people who willingly march us all towards certain doom with their illogical views.

We fight as one.
Stand up and VOTE, so that those who only look to exploit nature and humanity will be persecuted! - so that facism can't win!

Yours, Waldkauz

P.S. get those stickers at our merch for free.

at Kulturfabrik Löseke Hildesheim
20 h Showtime Cesair
21.45 h Showtime Waldkauz


 







(2).jpgBericht aus München
"Bei WALDKAUZ wurde nicht küstlich ein Korsett üer verschiedene Musiker gestülpt, sondern diese haben sich selbst und ihre Musik gefunden. Allein dadurch erreicht der Auftritt eine gewisse Intensität, wie er bei gecasteten Popsternchen so nicht zu finden ist. ... " Wer am vergangenen Freitag in München nicht dabei sein konnte oder sich fü unser neues Lineup interessiert, kann hier einen Einblick gewinnen.  Hier geht es zum Artikel.
Danke an Sigi Maier von Metal1.info









(1).jpgThe Pagan Journey goes on!

This saturday together with Cesair at Willemeen in Arnhem in the Netherlands.

(5).jpgPapa Peter
Papa Peter - Last weekend the first smol Waldkauz came to have a look on this world. Let's make sure he will only find good things here!
Congrats to Peter and Lisa on their little drummerboy.
So the Waldkauz lineage is secured ;) - and it goes on and on and on.






(4).jpgNeue Saison
When we are off stage for a longer time (aka winter break) it's a special thing to come back on stage again and play for you our music. We have new voices on stage, new instruments and NEW SONGS.
Exciting and a bit nerve wrecking so spiritual preparation is a must need!

Because Fabienne will only come with us upcoming season as a workaround we are searching for new bandmembers! The optimum would be if you are a female singer with hurdygurdymagic and a bit of harp on the side. But please write us also if you are only a singer (f) or play the hurdygurdy (m/f).
There is much to experience with us! We are looking forward to your messages!

47gina.jpgFarewell

20.11.2018

Dear friends,


Today we have sad news for you. In December our dear Gina will share the stage with us for the last time.


After thinking about it for a long time Gina has decided to take her leave from the stage for health reasons.

She has our deepest respect for her decision and all wish that she will have the peace and privacy she needs.

But Waldkauz will carry on! And we hope that you carry that decision with us and that we can all look forward to an exciting 2019.


Here are some personal words from Gina for you:

..........................................

"For more than 5 years Waldkauz was my home.

It was the most intense, fulfilling and simply best time so far.


So it was even more painful to see and realize that for the past months it was consuming more of my energy than I could bear.

Some of you my know that I have been struggling with depression for most of my life. This was a continuous burden on my path but also showed me some doors that I wouldn't have dared to open otherwise.

The founding of Waldkauz was one of those doors.


For my Waldkauz-Family I wish that you continue striving for your dream, don't forget the sort of magic you conjure and that you let yourself be led by music.


Thank you to all the people that I got to meet, for listening to our music and for all the support!


Gina"

21.03.2018

The time has finally arrived!

The sun-half of the year has begun and thus the light returned.


Even though around here spring is still fighting against snow and temperatures below zero the sun is still coming through to warm us.


Just as every year I recognize that the rays of sun are causing me too to bloom like the first small flowers.

That is the feeling I wait for through out winter. And just as for the small blossomsit is time to face the sun, absorb the light and use that energy.

Whatever you are currently planning or might even started already you must use this new found courage to reach your goals and make your wishes come true.


Spring greetings,

Gina &Waldkauz

79Video.jpgVideoshoot

We spent our last weekend outside on a cool lovation in Minden to shoot our new musicvideo. The song is called "Zündet die Feuer". After we played it for a long time on stage now there soon will be a studio version of it available.
