Ticket to Happiness

The up-and-coming German folk band “Ticket to Happiness” were able to call a tremendous success their own in the finals of the “Deutscher Rock and Pop Preis 2018″ (German Rock and Pop Awards 2018), which took place in Siegen. They won awards for 8 categories, among them five first places and three second places. The band especially swept the jury away in the folk music category, winning first place for awards such as best folk rock band, best folk rock album (All Aboard, 2018), best folk rock song (Icarus), and best folk rock singer (Jan Philipp Bäumer). Additionally they also won best country singer (Jan Philipp Bäumer). They were able to convince the jury with their highly esteemed debut album “All Aboard”, which sports 12 original and fresh folk songs, as well as with their live performance of their single “Icarus”. The band consists of Jan Philipp Bäumer (vocals), Mona Kaczmarzcyk (violin), Patrick Helle (mandolin, banjo, cajón) and Yannick Helle (guitars). Usually they have additional support in the form of their double-bass players Jonathan Schnurr and/or Stefan Schwarzinger. With the help of this grandiose success they were able to rise up to the top division of the German folk scene. For 2019, they have planned an extensive tour with numerous gigs.
