Swiss folklore evening Geneva 27.01

It's yodel time again...and again! At least the Swiss authorities can see I am promoting Swiss traditions to my fellow expats!


Anyway, the essentials:


When: Saturday 27th January, doors open at 6.00 p.m., show starts at 8.00 p.m.
Where: Salle Communale de Plain-Palais, rue de Carouge 52, Genève centre
http://www.ville-geneve.ch/plan-vill...e-plainpalais/


What: a whole evening of Swiss folklore, with mainly yodel (including your humble McTavGe!) from all over Switzerland AND Austria (with an alternative young band called Alma- Check them out, they're brilliant!), but also flag throwers, Alpine horn and animation by THE star of Swiss Yodel: Barbara Klossner.
See detail on our website: https://www.alphuttli.ch/


Price:25 CHF show only, 60 CHF dinner and show (one set menu, sorry vegetarian friends!): smoked duck breast - Pork fillet in mushroom sauce, rice and peas- Raspberry tiramisu.


For dinner and show, booking is essential by phone or e-mail (Tell Alex it's Fred the Scot who is recommending you, you'll get best tables!): +41 79 128 96 38 (en cas de non réponse, préférer le sms au message vocal)
ou par courriel : alexander-gamma@hotmail.ch




Sandwiches and cakes are also available if you don't book the menu.


There will be a great variety of artists and it should be lively. After the show, there will be a band to entertain those of you who wish to dance till late in the night! Come on, get down to Geneva!

Re: Swiss folklore evening Geneva 27.01

Forgot to say, it's a family show, with often kids wandering off around the tables, quite informal, except when there is a yodel or someone singing. Lots of people go off to the bar and back, so in other words, you don't have to get stuck to your table the whole evening!

Re: Swiss folklore evening Geneva 27.01

These young women and man are coming all the way from Austria to Geneva to be part of our concert...do you see any grey hair, do you hear any yodel? I don't.


I think they are great! Excellent musicians.

Re: Swiss folklore evening Geneva 27.01

I'll continue my "Yodel Monologues"!


Right you lot, since not one single EFer has made enquiries for the BIG Swiss evening, at least purchase our CD:


https://www.alphuttli.ch/copie-de-musique


25 CHF and helps the club to keep Swiss traditions going in the most untraditional Swiss city: Geneva!


Perfect gift if you are invited, combined with a pack of fondue cheese and a bottle of Chasselat, et voilà, here's your mini Swiss hamper!

Re: Swiss folklore evening Geneva 27.01

I appreciate your enthusiasm for yodeling, but I confess I'm far too lazy to go to Geneva for the concert. Let me know next time you're up in the Berner Oberland with the group.

Re: Swiss folklore evening Geneva 27.01

Awesome, amazing, top quality, unique, moving, fantastic, an emotional roller coaster, a music feast...are part of the feedback we got. Full house!


As I was checking the tickets at the entrance, I can report that NO EF member came...so the free bottles of red wine I had kept aside as a thank you for your support have all gone home, enough to last me a fortnight...Cheers, santé, zum wohl, salute!

There is hope for this place yet. Maybe it's time to give the yodeling threads a rest?

Re: Swiss folklore evening Geneva 27.01

Yodelling is fine. It's the Geneva bit that puts me off...

(also the fact that we have no cash and never go out)

Still, I'm surprised that no Welschies turned up. I think the social aspect of EF is pretty much dead now. It's all on Facebook these days.

And how would you know that no EF'er came? Did you hold up a sign?

Anyway, where were we supposed to sit if you had a full house?

You can send those bottles to aSwissintheUS and all the others who told you where the songs come from, translated them for you etc. etc. etc. (ah! Was I not amongst them?)
You couldn't have enjoyed last night, if we hadn't held your hand for weeks before but it seems this "you give someone the pinky, he grabs the entire hand" holds some truth.

Glad you had a good time and it was a success
Dreading what comes next

mmm, that put a temper on the buzz feeling. Doesn't mean I'm not grateful for the help I received, far from it.


No pinky grabbing from me, thanks!


EFer at the evening: would have been spotted miles away, trust me! (Smiling and not part of the pink permed hair brigade!)

Made it to the Swiss-French news, what a Rock Star status this morning at work! (do you qualify when you have 5 fans??)
