  Music, Writer

Werner Lämmerhirt was born on March 17, 1949, and died on October 14, 2016.

He was a German singer-songwriter and guitarist.

He song in mostly the contemporary folk music style.

Werner Lämmerhirt sang and wrote in both German and English, in a recording career that spanned more than three decades.

At one point in his career, he met Hannes Wader, who invited him to collaborate with him in making an album, “Ich hatte mir noch so viel vorgenommen”.

That success of that album led to Lämmerhirt accompanying Wader on tours – his first assignment as a professional musician.

Then Werner collaborated with Wader on two further albums.

He worked as a session musician at this time with artists such as Tom Paxton, Eddie and Finbar Furey and Alex Campbell.

Werner Lämmerhirt passed away at 67 years old.
