Schrammelmusik in Vienna

Where can I hear Schrammelmusik in Vienna? I don't want to go too far afield, because we won't have a lot of time in Vienna.

Good idea posted by Emily ! Live Schrammelmusik isn't a ubiquitous form these days , as the audiences are aging out . Just to pique your interest , here are several videos of Philharmonia Schrammlen from quite some years ago The violinists are members of The Vienna State Opera Orchestra ( and The Vienna Philharmonic ) although they sport more gray hair these days . This has long been some of my favorite music , and take notice of the use of a diatonic button accordion and the Contraguitar - https://youtu.be/V6oYfd9-2o0?si=k8dOodxGDawwf8VA and this - https://youtu.be/8sXG4kx-MFI?si=ZBI7v_d3kEdob1Qx This also includes a piccolo Ab clarinet , a devilish instrument to play in tune More of these fine musicians on YouTube
