Austria music

Austria , Graz, capital province of Styria.

I met a accordion player of exceptional standard. Johann played on a traditional, fully handcrafted accordion made from local fir. Such instruments are rare, just as Johann himself.
I have not come across such player throughout my life. In this song he performs for me he sings about his girlfriend : ‘ My girlfriend is the cow maid ‘.
However simple this may sound, it has a special meaning. In Austria ‘s alpine pastures local girls are as pretty as can be. Perhaps a number of reasons may contribute to this fact, the fresh, clear mountain air may be one of them, naturally grown food another.
Exercise is not a strange word to those girls Johann refers to. They move with their cattle up the mountains for a whole day, each day during the summer season.
Enjoy watching : ‘ My girlfriend is the cow maid ‘ – by Johann ( John)

  1. John is my absolute favorite accordion player. When I met him in Graz, province of Styria, Austria, I asked him to perform for me one of his most popular songs.
    He sung this song for me, as simple as it may sound, it does have lots of meaning. ‘ My girlfriend is the cow girl ‘.
    One would assume the song to be rather basic. Not so. It tells the relationship between a cowgirl and local girls in general. ‘ Beautiful flowers – pretty maids ‘ it goes on.
    Listen to the song and forgive the poor sound quality. It was posted without enhancement.
