Due to the corona crisis we’re facing (for the first time in our band history) a summer without concerts. Therefore we decided to release a brand new FAUN song on Bandcamp.
“Tamlin” is an old Scottish ballad about a young man who has been robbed by the queen of fairies.
You can not only listen to to the full version of „Tamlin“ on Bandcamp, but by donating 4 € or more you can stream the song on Bandcamp more than three times and download it in a good quality. Therefore we would be very grateful if you would help us through these hard times by purchasing our song.
PLEASE ALSO SHARE THIS POS! so that as many people as possible get to know about „Tamlin“.
We’re truly missing the concerts and especially YOU (!) very much these days.
See you hopefully very soon again,
Due to the current pandemic, we unfortunately had no chance but to postpone the remaining five concerts of our “Märchen & Mythen Deutschland Tour” for another time.
The remaining concerts will therefore not take place in September 2020, but on the following dates:
17.09.2021 Halle – Händel Halle
18.09.2021 Erfurt – Alte Oper
19.09.2021 Berlin – Admiralspalast
20.09.2021 München – Circus Krone
15.10.2021 Chemnitz – Stadthalle
Tickets and seat reservations stay valid.
We apologize once again for any inconvenience caused by the postponed shows.
This has been a very difficult and unpleasant decision to us as well but unfortunately it is impossible for us to play the dates in September 2020. We tried hard and luckily managed to find worthy alternative dates in these very popular concert halls.
These times aren’t easy, but we remain optimistic and look forward to 2021!
We are very happy to introduce our newest band member: Adaya!
She is not only a great singer and songwriter, she also plays the celtic harp, bagpipes, various flutes, bouzouki, guitar, bodhran, banjo, lyra and many more.
Considering herself a musical citizen of the world, having strong roots in Celtic tradition.
Adaya has already released two solo CDs and been on the road for many years with medieval bands, such as the great “Kel Amrun”. With her warm folk voice and her instrumental skills we found ourselves underlying her spell immediately.
So we are already writing new songs together and may announce at this point that – also due to a label change – our musical journey will be rougher, more folk and a lot more archaic again.
If you want to get more information about Adaya and her solo project, please visit her homepage at: www.adaya.net
We are looking forward to our upcoming adventures and welcome Adaya in the family,

On April 15th, German government issued a statement that major events will be banned until August 31st 2020. The number of people from which a big event is too big to be held will be decided individually by the single states. This means that it cannot be foreseen yet, whether, for example, the gathering of 900 peacefully celebrating faun fans in July will be possible underneath the open sky in a manor in Thuringia. As soon as we know that a date will be cancelled for sure, we will announce it immediately on our homepage and on the social media platforms – along with an alternative date at the very same time.
The already purchased tickets remain valid!
We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for your understanding in this not easy time for us either.
Enjoy the spring as much as you can, stay healthy and see you soon,
We are very happy that we’d at least been able to experience 7 wonderful concert evenings of our „Märchen & Mythen“ tour all over Germany before our shows in Chemnitz and Erfurt have been postponed due to Covid19.
The new tour dates for the remaining 5 shows of our latest album are
06.09.2020 – DE – Erfurt – Alte Oper
07.09.2020 – DE – Munich – Circus Krone
08.09.2020 – DE – Berlin – Admiralspalast
09.09.2020 – DE – Chemnitz – Stadthalle
18.09.2020 – EN – Halle – Händel Halle
Furthermore, the wonderful festival “Echos & Merveilles” in Toulouse, France, has been postponed to 2021 – the same event is now going to take place on April 23rd – 25th 2021 and we ourselves will enjoy the evening with you on Saturday, 25.04.2021!
Many thanks for your support and wonderful winter days, hopefully a little enchanted by “fairy tales & myths”.

The festivals, the organizers, helpers, our crew and most importantly the audience, we simply couldn’t imagine a better environment. Some photos from the festival are now in our Gallery.

The greatest songs and highlights of the band history of FAUN intergrated in one anniversary tour. With great guests like for example: Lisa Pawelke, Flo Janoschke (Versengold) and many more. We strongly recommend the ticket presale via: www.eventim.de
Thank you so very much, yours FAUN
If you like to stay informed about Katja’s music, visit her at: www.katjamoslehner.de
As a replacement, we now present you LAURA FELLA, who will join us on stage from 2017 onwards. We were acquainted with Laura for quite a little while. She is not only a great musician, but also her character is fitting very much to FAUN. Like us, she loves folk and especially the celtic and nordic music. She is not only a great singer, but also plays the Mandola and frame drums. During the last months she was with our friends, Eluveitie, as a singer at their concerts. Prior to that, she was on the road with many other bands.
You can see Laura’s debut appearence on stage with us at the MIDGARD TOUR.
Tickets for the numbered seats are already available via: www.eventim.de
Looking forward very much, yours FAUN.
“MIDGARD” will be a musical journey into the north. Into the myths and the world of the vikings and the northern celts. We will sing about Alswinn, the sky horse, about nights in enchanted birch forests, about sun celebrations, ravens, foxes and about Odin himself. With the help of great guest musicians like for example Wardruna (Norway), Efren Lopez (Spain), Martin Seeberg (Denmark) and Maya Fridman (Russia) and an elaborate illustrated booklet MIDGARD will be released in two editions:
MIDGARD – Standard Edition with 11 Songs and MIDGARD – Limited Deluxe Edition in Digipack with 15 Songs & 28 pages Booklet.
Looking forward, yours FAUN.
Our next two concerts will be under open skies again at the beautiful medieval festival MPS in Bückeburg & Karlsruhe.
We are much looking forward to it, yours FAUN.
Here are two fotos of the concert (pic Oliver by Kees Stravers). We are already looking forward a lot to the coming summer concert nights together with you. Yours FAUN.
Our big thank you, to everybody who was involved in this success.
Years ago, when we were sitting at the bonfires and sang songs of noble knights, trolls and nature religion, we would have never even dared to dream about such a success.
So we raise our glasses, to everyone who was helping us and also to everybody who was listening to our songs and visited us at our concerts. This mesmerizing adventure “FAUN” doesn’t stop to surprise and enchant us. Therefore we already looking forward to the next chapters in this wonderful book called “FAUN” and of course we still sing our songs of noble knights, trolls and nature religion with our deepest conviction and from the bottom of our hearts. Yours FAUN.
Therefore, a big thank you to everybody who participated in “LUNA” and to the people, fans and friends, who stayed by our side for all those years.
On 26th of March we will be in Berlin for the awards. You can follow the show live on German TV at ARD 8:15 pm.
Although we organized and rehearsed for many months, we never knew how everything will work out in the end. We would have never guessed that everything would work out that well. Therefore a big THANK-YOU to the best crew in the world, to everybody who helped us realize this tour and to the enthusiastic audience. The first two sold out shows were amazing and maybe the most important part in this might be the absolutely euphoric atmosphere in the venues.
Dear Faun audience, you are the best!!!
Today we will rest a day and than our tour will continue to Bamberg, Würzburg, Bielefeld, Hannover and many other cities. Looking forward very keenly, yours FAUN.
We are happy to experience such a lot of support by our fans, families, by other bands of our scene and many old friends.
Therefore a very BIG THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!
It was a pleasure to share the stage with so many gifted and friendly colleagues.
Now we are already in Kiel. Tonight is the first concert of our LUNA TOUR. The first two shows are already sold out.
Again, thank you, yours FAUN.
Germany has such a beautiful heritage of poetry and traditional folk music. From our very early days on, we got a huge part of our inspiration from this cultural heritage. Therefore we believe, that we would be a good choice to represent Germany at the ESC.
We will participate with our two songs “Hörst du die Trommeln” and “Abschied”. Right now we build a big wooden stage decoration ourselves. We rearranged the two songs, rehearse a lot and are pretty nervous about this big TV event with more than 5 Million viewers. We also know, that this world of glamour and big TV shows will never be our home and that we would feel much more comfortable at a medieval market instead. But we believe in what we do. We believe, that we can raise an interest there for myths and fairy tales and that theses myths of mermaids, elves and ghosts that dwell under a full moon do make our world more alive. And only a world that is perceived as alive will get the respect that it deserves to be protected and valued.
So please help us, watch the show and call for us, because the winner will be selected by telephone votings.
This might be a very big opportunity for us and for sure another crazy adventure on this marvelous journey.
On the 27th February 2015 we will release this recorded session as “FAUN LUNA – live & acoustic in Berlin”. We decided to do this as a double CD including the Standard edition of LUNA, because LUNA has a lot of meaning and depth for us, including the artwork, the explanation texts and the wholeness of the songs. To only release a few of these songs separated from the rest would not have felt right for us. But we will release this double CD in a noble digipack, only 1,- Euro more expensive than the regular price for a single CD in a plastic jewel case. On the bonus CD are 7 Acoustic songs from the Berlin session, the 2 songs that we re-recorded and rearranged for the Eurovision song contest and one remix of Walpurgisnacht by the genious Christopher Juul (Euzen, Valravn).
We are already looking forward to this acoustic gem and wish you lovely moonlit nights with it, yours FAUN.
Our only concert in the USA in 2014 will be on 7th Nov. in Baltimore at the FAERIECON EAST, a huge convention of authors, musicians, artists and vendors, who are inspired by the faerie realm.
Wow, we can’t believe it. Our latest CD “Luna” was rank #4 in the German Album charts. This is astonishing for a CD, that has such a mystic atmosphere. Thanks a lot again to all the people, who believed in us, who supported us and who made this possible.
Thanks a lot, yours FAUN.
Wow, what a summer. The festivals were a lot of fun, our concerts are better than ever and where do all this thousands of people come from 😉 We feel really blessed by Karma.
If you click these pics you will find a gallery with a few photos from our last concerts. 10 more summer concerts are about to come.
Hopefully see you there, yours FAUN.
We were nominated for the best german Pop / Rock group and for the best Newcomer.
(They didn’t have the categories Paganfolk or Medieval Nordic Folk yet, but we are working on this one 😉 )
Please do wish us good luck, Thursday the 27th March 2014 will be the big day.
We do wonder further about how the things develop these days for us and are very grateful for this honour.
