Back to the 1780's! If it sounded good back then, why not today? With their finely textured arrangements WÖR injects new energy into 18th-century tunes from the Flanders region of Belgium.
Their music shines an inventive spotlight, with a modern twist, on tunes from the manuscripts of De Gruijtters (Antwerp, 1746), Van Belle (Van Belle, 1743), De Prins (Leuven, 1781) and many more.
They released 2 albums ('Back to the 1780's' (2015) and Sssht (2017) and toured in Europe, Australia, Canada & the US (including Musikfestspiele Potsdam Sanssouci, Concertgebouw Brugge, the National Folk Festival,..). In August 2018 they won the German award 'Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik' with their latest album 'Sssht'.
They’re all astonishing musicians, coaxing fantastic sounds out of their chosen instruments. - Stephen D. Winick, Huffington Post (USA)
Everything is tightly arranged with frequent changes of lead instrument and in the overall timbre and dynamic of the band sound. - fRoots Magazine
Wör's album is brilliant. It's very exciting to hear a young band reinterpreting old manuscripts in a refreshing and new way - Sam Sweeney - BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician Of The Year 2015
