>Slipping through the cracks – #1025


This one almost didn’t get done.
2 years ago this month, Hubert von Goisern‘s barge docked in Mainz’s commercial port for a concert.
Hubert’s an Austrian alt.rock musician who mixes in traditional elements (yodelling, anyone…?) and who’s been described as an “Alpine Rocker”.
He also tours.
For 2 years straight. 
On a barge.
This tour kicked off in Linz, his home town, and headed east through Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria to the Black Sea.
Then he turned round and headed west until he got to Rotterdam.
And every day or so, he’d drop anchor (or whatever you do on a barge), fold out the stage and backdrop, plug in the amps and rip into a concert for the folks on terra firma.
For which we were lucky enough to have tickets.
To be continued
