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.

FAUN – SUMMER OPEN AIR FESTIVALS 2015
We simply loved our first festival show of this summer at the MPS Bückeburg. Thanks a lot.
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.
FAUN “VON DEN ELBEN” GOES PLATINUM
Wow!!! what beautiful summer days and what amazing news. Our CD “Von den Elben” got a Platinum Award.
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.
FAUN CONCERT 500 METERS BELOW THE SURFACE!!!
Thanks a lot to everybody who made this truly magical concert possible. FAUN in a sold out mine, 500 meters below the surface. It was an honor for us to sing our songs in this gigantic halls and endless labyrinth of mines.
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.
FAUN “LUNA” NOMINATED FOR THE ECHO (MUSIC AWARD)
Just a couple of days ago so many people crossed their fingers for our participation at the Eurovision Song contest preshow, and now comes the next event. We are nominated for the biggest German music award the “Echo” in the category “Rock/Pop Band national”. We think we won’t have a big chance against German music giants like “die Fantastischen Vier”, but still we are honoured to be nominated with such a personal and mystic CD like “LUNA”.
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.
Yours FAUN
FAUN LUNA TOUR
Thank you very much!!!
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.
FAUN AFTER THE ESC PRESHOW
The German Eurovision Song Contest is over, we didn’t win but we were in a very good mood. It was an exciting and surreal evening, which was a lot of fun.
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.
FAUN AT THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST PRESHOW 5th Mar. 2015, 8.15pm on ARD (German TV)
We will participate in this huge TV event, that decides, which band is going to represent Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest.
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.
Yours FAUN.
FAUN LUNA – Live & Acoustic in Berlin (release: 27.2.2015)
While rehearsing our LUNA TOUR last November we discovered that some of the LUNA songs sound fantastic as a stripped down acoustic version. We simply wanted to record them and thus organized a small acoustic concert in Berlin last December 2014, where we positioned a lot of microphones.

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.

FAUN IN THE USA

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.

FAUN – LUNA RANK #4 IN THE GERMAN CD CHARTS

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.

FAUN IS NOMINATED FOR 2 ECHOS (BIGGEST GERMAN MUSIC AWARD)
It was hard to believe! We’d just returned from the USA, still dreaming about faeries and didn’t fully got down to reality, when we received this message: “FAUN is nominated in 2 categories for the most important german music award, the ECHO.”
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.
