Sunday Song #29 Als die Kunden frech geworden

This is a little recording from todays Mitsing-Konzert at TFF in Rudolstadt with David Saam, Christoph Lambertz, Rees Richter and the audience of Rudolstadt. We are celebrating Peter Rohland, who rediscovered old German folk songs 50 years ago. ‚Als die Kunden (=Landstreicher) frech geworden‘ is a song about people living on the road. We will play another version of that song on Sunday on the big stage!
