23 and 24 August 2019
This summer, the third edition of the OldTownSessions will take place in the cosy ambience of the OldTown of Saas-Grund. In addition to the host "The Genepy", bands such as "Them Fleurs", "Croak", "Needle & Salt" and "Initramp" will also be on stage.

- Bands: Initramp, Them Fleurs
The OldTownSessions are opened by Initramp from Visperterminen. The cover band with their 6 members already played at many events in and around Visperterminen like the Bodmerfest.
Afterwards the stage is set for Them Fleurs. The 5 Walliser musicians, who wanted to make music together on the street for a short time at the beginning, have made a name for themselves in Switzerland and also in Germany over the years. With their own conclusive ThemFleurs-Sound between Pop, spherical Rock and Postsomething they inspire their audience. So it is not surprising that they have performed on stages such as the OpenAir Gampel, Grabenhalle in St. Gallen, Volkhaus in Zurich or also in Berlin, Hamburg and Stuttgart.

- Bands: Needle & Salt, Croak, The Genepy
Saturday is marked by Countries and Southern Rock. The evening starts with Needle and Salt. With their own songs written by Rolf Schnyder (Needle) and with the voice of Fredy Salzmann (Salt) country rock comes to life.
Afterwards the stage belongs to Croak, one of the most famous Southern Rock bands in Switzerland. As a big finale, host The Genepy will rock the stage with their Alpine Southern Rock. Just as the Genepy Kraut thrives in the harsh climate of the back Saas Valley and Monte Rosa and as a schnapps provides for cheerful minds and sociable songs again and again, so the band convinces on their homemade instruments with their rough and honest "Alpine" Southern Rock the audience.
On both evenings, after the concerts, they go to the traditional restaurants of the OldTown for a convivial round with the bands.
The advance sale of tickets starts at Easter.
