Chris Jewell

Chris first came to Zeilitzheim in 1984, and has been musician several times since then. He has led and played in many bands over the years, and can often be found playing for Ceilidhs in North Devon where he lives with Kerstin. He plays mainly melodeon at camp, but fiddle was his first instrument and he also loves playing and singing with guitar. His main focus this camp will be playing for dancing, as well as arrangements of a couple of pretty tunes!

Paul Weir

Paul was the leader of the first ever German Folk Camp in 1980 which is why we have asked him to return for our 40th camp! That camp was in Grasberg, near Bremen organised by Gabriele von Pappenheim. In the UK he has been leading camps for more than 45 years and still enjoys it! “I love the atmosphere at Zeilitzheim” says Paul. Paul is a regular caller for folk dances in the UK, but has also called dances in Belgium, Germany and France. He enjoys playing melodeon, harmonica and spoons. He lives part-time in France with his French partner Michele and enjoys playing with her band for Bal Folk.

Jochen Riemer

A fanatical concertina and melodeon player. A qualified music teacher and experienced organizer of folk events for all ages. For many years he has been a dedicated and enthusiastic leader of the Folk Camp youth and children’s band.
