's Oliver Marsh at the R.SA Festival in Schwarzenberg

Yesterday, SAILOR were meant to play at the R.SA Festival in Schwarzenberg (Germany) for the first time in over 3 years. But the band only consists of Henry Marsh and Oliver Marsh at the moment after Phil Pickett's departure last year. And Henry recently had a hip operation from which he is still recovering. So, instead of cancelling, captain Oliver took on the difficult and brave job of entertaining the enormous crowd at the Schwarzenberg festival on his own, with a backing track made by Henry especially for the occasion that included the rest of the music and his backing vocals.
The audience ended up being so impressed by Oliver's voice that the crowd requested an additional encore and he sang a second "Con Te Partiṛ".
You can see some photos and also my first video bits of this impressive special day below. Enjoy!


  • Here are some first impressions of SAILOR's Oliver Marsh in Schwarzenberg (Germany) on 10 June 2017 - some bits "A Glass Of Champagne", "The Secretary", "Girls Girls Girls", "La Cumbia" and the big finale with "Con Te Partiṛ" - performed twice because the audience couldn't get enough of his voice:

"Handmade" the radio show now hosted by Katrin Wagner
with regular SAILOR and SAILOR-related music

As you may know my brother Karsten created and hosted his own radio show "Handmade" at our local radio station "Freies Radio Kassel" for almost 17 years. After his death in October 2016 I didn't want his proud project to fall silent, so that you can now listen to me every second Wednesday from 8 pm CET on. In commemoration of Karsten, my version of "Handmade" will continue to play all kinds of handmade music, stories about concerts we saw and much much more.
Of course it will also include SAILOR and SAILOR-related music every week.
The next show on Wednesday 08 March 2017 will feature some rarities of SAILOR and Georg Kajanus, and also music from Pete Lincoln.

You can listen to "Handmade" every second Wednesday in even weeks, 8 - 9 pm CET
in and around Kassel via radio: UKW 105,8 MHz
and worldwide via live-stream at
(or just click the button on the right).
