The tyrolean group HAUSER
The tyrolean group HAUSER was foundet in 1949 by the brothers Hans, Josef and Sebastian. From 1954 on, the group was in the conditions to perform an whole tyrolean evening. The big upswing came at the end of the seventies. Out of numerous incentive trips together with neighbour tourists offices, there were important invitations to come on tour, from near and distant foreign countries.
The first recording of tyrolean group HAUSER appeared on the market in 1974 and there followed another three. In 1987 they gained - as the first tyrolean group in Austria - the GOLDEN RECORD.
In 1989 the group HAUSER had it`s first appearance in tv. Another unforgettable event was the invitation to the „Musikantenstadl“ (the biggest tv show in folkmusic) televised from the city of Cottbus(GDR), in dicember 1989, immediately after the fall of the Wall.
The tyrolean group HAUSER at the moment has 30 members, 10 of them forming the Young Group.
