Poetry of Pop | Concert | open-air stage

Old Botanical Garden

The "Poetry of Pop" series is showcasing the most gifted songwriters and music poets from home and abroad. He is definitely one of them: Trummer.


What do we have to do with our parents and our family history? What do we make of the traces they left for and in us? And how do we tell their story?


The new multimedia album "Familienalbum" (Family album) is full of wise and touching thoughts about love, responsibility and growing up. It is an attempt to understand and pass on family history. In the songs, he puts himself in the place of his parents, who died at an early age, and tells a love story that is also a story of disillusionment. 


Christoph Trummer is considered one of the best singer-songwriters in Switzerland.  The master of musical storytelling tells stories that life writes and that at the same time co-write our lives. For his poetic dialect lyrics, the Bernese won the Artist Award of the Swiss Music Awards in 2021. 

At the festival he will present his new songs in duo with Nadja Stoller (vocals, various instruments).
