NAPAEA is the 5-piece Folk-Pop band around the Austrian Singer-Songwriter Katharina Milchrahm. Using a broad range of dynamics, NAPAEA tell their listeners about wanderlust and growing up in small villages.

Quite varied songwriting and the extraordinary selection of instruments - guit, bass, drums, concertina, fiddle, blues harps - promise excitement, when NAPAEA take their crowd on a trip through Irish pubs and at sea.

During their young career they already supported and played with bands/musicians like Wallis Bird, PJ Bond, The Uptown Monotones, Big Eyes, The Liberation Service, Stefan Wedam among others.

NAPAEA ist die 5-köpfige Folk-Pop Band rund um die oststeirische Singer-Songwriterin Katharina Milchrahm. Mal laut, mal leise erzählen sie mit erdiger Stimme und erfrischendem Folk von der Heimat und vom Fernweh, vom alt werden und vom Feiern in Irish Pubs.

Nicht nur durch das abwechslungsreiche Songwriting, auch durch die Instrumentierung mit Gitarre, Bass, Schlagzeug, Konzertina, Mundharmonika und Geige versprechen NAPAEA Spannung und nehmen ihr Publikum mit auf eine Reise durch Pubs und auf hohe See.

In ihrer jungen Folk/Singer-Songwriter Laufbahn supporteten und spielten sie bereits mit musikalischen Größen wie Wallis Bird, PJ Bond, The Uptown Monotones, Big Eyes, The Liberation Service, Stefan Wedam.
