German Music Duo: Liab' und Schneid
Liab’ und Schneid is the Mid-Atlantic’s premier duo for authentic German Alpine Music (echte Volksmusik), the traditional entertainment and dance music of the mountains of Austria, Switzerland, Bavaria, and South Tyrol. Our mission is to bring you the most authentic Alpine music you'll hear on this side of the Atlantic, with the most diverse range of instruments (as well as vocals), in the most fun way possible.

The key to Liab' und Schneid's success: bringing you the energy of the music Alpine “locals” listen and dance to, spiced up with some Oberkrainer classics and timeless hits in the German Volksmusik tradition.
