Your first contact with music?/Dein erster Kontakt mit der Musik?/Il primo contatto con la musica?
I guess when we both started playing the violin at a young age.

What do like about playing music on the street?/Warum spielst du gerne auf der Straße?/Che cosa ti piace del suonare per strada?
It’s fun, it’s raw, it’s you exposing who you are as a person/musician to whoever wants to stop and listen. Every time you hit the streets you’re in for a new experience.

Which artist or concert impressed you particularly and why?/Welcher KünstlerIn oder welches Konzert hat dich besonders beeindruckt und warum?/L’artista o il concerto che ti ha colpito di più e perché?
Chuck Ragan Padova 2009 – that was the concert that got us playing the music we do today.  The soundtrack of your current life?/Der Soundtrack deines derzeitigen Lebens?/La colonna sonora della tua vita ora? 

Everything from Old Crow Medicine Show to Pink Floyd and Doc Watson to Wagner.

What does it mean to be a musician?/Was bedeutet es MusikerIn zu sein?/Cosa significa essere un musicista? 
To be willing to stand naked in front of judgmental eyes. To not be afraid to play your music and be the person you are.

What does your family think of your choice to be a musician?/Was meint deine Familie zu deinem MusikerIn-Dasein?/Cosa ne pensa la tua famiglia della scelta di fare musica?
They’re supportive.

Dream concert – impossible concert: who would you like to hear?/Wunschkonzert – mögliches unmögliches Konzert: Wen würdest du gerne mal hören?/Concerto dei sogni – concerto impossibile: chi vorresti sentire?
Luke Kelly and the dubliners in an Irish Pub.

Best or worse experience of your musical career?/Erzähl uns eine Anekdote aus deinem Musikerleben, was war die schönste oder schlimmste Erfahrung?/Aneddoti: la migliore o peggiore esperienza della tua carriera musicale?
One of the best when we played our own original music accompanied by an orchestra, that was amazing.
