ZIRP, the new project of Faun hurdy-gurdy player Stephan Groth, is breaking new ground in the modern German folk scene. By combining different elements of Rock, Jazz, and Folk with traditional European dance music, the four musicians create their so-called Hurdy-gurdy Fusion Folk - a unique and unconventional mix, that enthuses both dance maniacs and passionate listeners who enjoy indulging themselves in diversified and enchanting arrangements. The instrumentation including amplified hurdy-gurdy, guitar in open tuning, double bass and drums provides for an extraordinary tonal spectrum that is completed by several effects and live loops. Extremely diversified, beautifully balanced and absolutely thrilling.
