Koenix emerged in 2009 from a street music project by Swiss musicians – Jonas Martin Schneider (vocals, bagpipes), Michael Hugi (bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy), Marco Piccapietra (bouzouki, sitar) and Philipp Eichenberger (drums) – at “Medeltidsveckan” on Gotland (SE), Scandinavia’s largest medieval festival. The international spirit remained: since then, the band established itself at medieval, folk and indie festivals in various European countries. Koenix has published four studio albums. The fifth will be released in 2022.
