Christian Hadersdorfer, social pedagogue and instrumental teacher from Deggendorf has been teaching on the hurdy-gurdy and the shepherd’s pipe for many years. He discovered the drone music for himself in 1996 and had already been accepted in the very renowned hurdy-gurdy ensemble “Surradial” in the early years.  (with Knud Seckel, Silke Reichmann, Elke Rogge, Alexander Loch, Fredi Pitzschel and others)

In his training on the hurdy-gurdy, he began at that time in the ranks of the  Hummel courses in the “Frankfurt scene”. Numerous further workshops with Silke Reichmann, Patrick Bouffard, “Maxou” Heintzen, Cliff Stapleton, among others, have shaped his technique to this day. Skewed rhythms and pieces with rotating beat positions are his signature.
He is a member of the world music formation Fiunferley, plays historical dance music and is a member of the medieval metal formation INGRIMM.
