Tyrolean Folk Song Archive

The Tyrolean Folk Song Archive in Innsbruck is dedicated to Tyrolean folk music in all its variants.

Already since 1905, the Tyrolean Folk Song Archive (Tiroler Volksliedarchiv) is a centre for those who love folk music, comprising folk songs, folk music, folk dance, and folk poesy. These cultural goods are gathered, researched, archived and published by the museum. The archive comprises an impressive collection of 70,000 secular and clerical songs, yodeller, instrumental pieces, dances and rhymes of North Tyrol, East Tyrol and South Tyrol, which date back to the 17th century.

Impressive are the tone document collection: About 15,000 recordings and corresponding handwritings have been gathered and archived over the years. More ancient tone documents have continuously been catalogued and digitalised in order to preserve them for future generations. Everyone who is interested in, can visit the archive, which is part of the Tyrolean State Museums.

It also consecrates on public relations and organises a series of concerts, performances and projects. Among them there is the project "Mit allen Sinnen" (With all the senses), dedicated to folk music and folk songs in schools. Some years ago, the facility has moved from the Feldstrasse road to the Stöcklgebäude, a building of the Tyrolean State Museum Ferdinandeum.
