FEDERN TOUR 2016
Name: Severin Trogbacher
Musical beginnings: I received my first violin at the age of five, which I then chucked in years later for a grotty bass. This then had to give way a few months later to the instrument of my final calling, the electric guitar. The violin and the bass, together with a viola and some Jews' harps, kazoos and other frippery are still in my possession though, because I still haven't mastered the art of selling on eBay ...
