2021 «Get Going!» Portrait Series
Christoph “Sirgel” Hartmann, Roland Hofer and Niculin Janett – three musicians from the canton of Thurgau – are composing a “characteristic” folk music melody with a simple chord accompaniment for each of the 80 municipalities in the canton. The compositions will be made available as sheet music and audio files, free of charge or copyright, on the online platform “www.wurmbaslehuufe.ch”. The intention is for the online platform to grow into a meeting and information hub for both the local community and creative artists, aimed at broadening their horizons with respect to Swiss folk music.

«Get Going!» has existed as a FONDATION SUISA funding offer since 2018. With this new form of a grant, creative and artistic processes that do not fall within established categories are given a financial jump-start.
