Umlaut Heads
Umlaut is Vermont’s premiere Polk Rock outfit. Currently hailing from the Plainfield VT area, the three brothers von Umlaut (Peter Young, guitar & vocals; Joe Mueller, accordion & vocals; and John Harrison, cello & vocals) bring the party with a dazzling musical performance that ranges from the cabarets of Weimar Berlin to the Rio Grande. They have a particular penchant for converting rock classics to polkas. Dust off your lederhosen!
