Die Lauser - austrian folkloristic music
Wild im Kilt
Definitly not my choice of music, but at least in kilts!

As you said; at least they are kilted. Just that I failed to find any connection between music they are playing and kilts.
I like the breeze between my knees

But why are they wearing kilts? They are an Austrian folk group, why then are they not dressed in Austrian national dress?
Nice - but I don't get it.
Stand and be counted!
All it takes for evil to flourish, is for good men to do nothing.

The video has a woman dressed in a dirndl interviewing a man in a kilt. I love it! Opa!

Thanks for the link. Liked the music. They all seem to wear the kilt well and it appears from the pictures that they are loved by the ladies. Well done!

From the website's photoalbum, they just played at an event held for rural youth in NW Austria, a region best known for it's ski slopes. 90% of the young men there were dressed in traditional menswear, but a couple of them were in kilts.
I assume that they were inspired by the band, so good for them!

There needs to be a connection?

I used to live in Graz and wouldn't mind a kilt in this particular tartan (just because) but I think Herr Rettl is the only source for it at the moment though it is milled in Scotland.

It is worth remembering that this region had a Celtic population dating back to pre-Roman times.

My thoughts exactly!
