Entertainer Bios

AlpenFolk

With authentic instruments, singing and yodeling, AlpenFolk presents the music and folklore of the Alps. They offer alpine music the way it was meant to be played – the way it is played today in rustic inns and mountain chalets of Bavaria, Tyrol, Styria and throughout the Alps!

Leavenworth Alphorns

12 foot long horn played by Alpine herdsmen and villagers, sounded for intercommunication and at ceremonies and festivals.

Bonnie Birch Trio

The Bonnie Birch Trio has been performing together for 25 years. Bonnie Birch, a virtuoso accordionist in the Northwest who plays many styles of music including Oktoberfest music, is joined by Nick Heiting (guitar, vocals) born in Munich, Germany who speaks and sings in fluent German, Paul Ostler (tubab) a superb musician with a background of 20 years performing in the Navy band all over the world.

Robert Baumann

Robert Baumann played his first professional accordion gig at age 12 and has been playing professionally at restaurants, wineries and private events ever since for the past 60+ years!

He played upright bass for 30-years with Leavenworth’s beloved Alpine music group, AlpenFolk, and is delighted to be back in town entertaining Leavenworth guests on accordion with his broad background of Bavarian & Austrian music.

Robert speaks German fluently and his music provides the perfect ambience for guests visiting our amazing Bavarian Village.
