Poul Høxbro

Since 1992, Poul has used his diverse musical background to resurrect the popular medieval instrumental combination of pipe and tabor. Most of his work is framed by a medieval context, but Poul also uses his re-creations in a variety of modern settings.

Poul Høxbro began his life in music as a rock drummer and later became fascinated with Andian folk music. He spent time travelling throughout South America learning and playing his music. During his student years he had a strong interest in new music and gave premiere performances of many new works. In 1994 he completed the soloist's diploma at the Academy and was immediately invited to join the teaching staff. Poul currently teaches an innovative course 'Musician-Performer' at the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music, Denmark.
