The Appenzell dulcimer player Töbi Tobler is considered a pioneer and innovator of his instrument. He found a new musical language between intuitive improvisation and rustic Appenzell tradition. The groups "Appenzeller Space Schöttl" and "Das Neue Original Appenzeller Streichmusik Projekt" were pioneering projects with which he surprised purists in the world of folk music, but also classical music, jazz and rock. A solo concert with Töbi Tobler is always an unforgettable experience. Töbi Tobler received the Swiss Music Prize in 2017.
