There is music in it!

A brief look at the history of the Palatinate hiking musiciansmuseum burg lichtenberg

The West Palatinate Musikantenland (predominantly the area of ​​the former Rhineland
Bavarian state commissioners Kusel, Homburg, Kaiserslautern and Kirchheim) is one
of the few regions of the German-speaking cultural area with a tradition of traveling musicians.

After the Palatinate had freedom of trade in the French period (1797 - 1814), the professional title of musician (musicien ”or“ Musigand ”!) Appeared more and more frequently in West Palatinate documents. The exemption from the compulsory guild now allows the considerable number of folk musicians living here to turn their natural talent (= inner reason) into a source of bread.

Economic reasons (overpopulation, years of hunger, poor harvests in the sparse West Palatinate growing area, etc.), similar to those that drove many Palatinate compatriots to emigrate to America in the 19th century, were also the reasons why the first musicians migrated around 1830 ( = external occasion!). First they traveled to neighboring countries (France, Switzerland) or other German states (Prussia), then the rest of Europe (Spain, Holland, British Isles, Scandinavia, Russia etc.) and finally - after the middle of the century - literally the entire civilized world.

After thorough trial work over the winter, our musicians moved out in spring, stayed until autumn, provided they were earning their living in Europe, or only returned from an overseas trip after two, three or more years.

In the heyday, around the turn of the century, an estimated 2500 hiking musicians were on the road and earned the considerable sum of several million gold marks annually. A very significant economic factor for the West Palatinate!
