The Erlkings are the world's newest genre defying Schubert ensemble. Comprised of four classically trained multi-instrumentalists The Erlkings perform fresh new arrangements of Schubert's finest songs, cleverly adapted for the modern English speaking audience. Equally at home on the concert stage or in a smokey beer-hall, The Erlkings are the only band around getting people to dance to Goethe and Schiller.
