Back to the 1780's!

Back to the 1780's! If it sounded good back then, why not today?
WÖR (pronounced ‘were’) is a band of five musicians whose curiosity, passion and talent has led to a niche goldmine of melodies in stunning contemporary arrangements. With their finely textured arrangements WÖR injects new energy into 18th-century melodies from Belgium. Their music shines an inventive spotlight, with a modern twist, on the melodies in these manuscripts.
They released 3 albums and toured in Europe, Australia, Canada & the US. In August 2018 they won the German award Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik for their album “Sssht”. In 2021 they were nominated for Best live band at the Flemish Folk Awards and their album “About Towers” made it into the World Music Charts Europe.
