The 14th edition of the galerie gugging special edition concert series promises to be an unforgettable musical experience once again – a concert that should have taken place three times already. In October 2022 the time has finally come! When even Herbert Grönemeyer raves in the highest tones about the artistic uniqueness of a band and immediately signs them up for his own label Greenland, that’s a good sign. And he should be more than right with his assessment: Oehl are undoubtedly one of the most exciting new pop discoveries of these days and are currently taking the German-speaking market by storm with their unmistakable sound and poetic miniatures.
Also not averse to musical experiments, singer and songwriter Ariel Oehl has put together a fascinating formation especially for this unique performance in Gugging: he brings Anna Tropper-Lehner and Niklas Pichler, two top-class musical companions and guests, onto the stage of the Villa Gugging.
Oehl & friends thus join a series of unique matinees and premieres that have been taking place in Gugging since 2017 as part of the galerie gugging special edition. Manuel Rubey & Gerald Votava, hackedepicciotto, Mira Lu Kovacs, Klaus Maria Brandauer, Jana Irmert, Runar Magnusson, Voodoo Jürgens, Lubomyr Melnyk, Christopher Chaplin, Lou Asril, Lukas Lauermann, Kana, James Moore and Art Brut (band) have already provided magical moments.
