Silja – pipes’n’strings

Silja is the Low German short form of the name Cecilia. Saint Cecilia is considered the patron saint of musicians, singers and poets.

The extraordinary line-up of bagpipes, violin and guitar/cister invite to a varying and atmospheric sound experience full of surprises, virtuosity, delight in playing and magical moments.

Founded in 2018, 3 experienced musicians of different traditions and styles come together and form a unique sound. Traditional music from Germany meets yiddish and jazzy elements. Groovy dancing tunes come together with dreamy ballads and rustic drinking songs, baroque elements with native folk music – a sensitive and at the same time purposeful balancing act between tradition and modernity.
