Oliver Schroer – Camino

Oliver Schroer walked the Camino de Santiago in 2004. His journey through France and Spain was eloquently captured in his writings and music. On July 3rd, 2008 Oliver Schroer died of leukemia.

His website is online today. There you can read of his experiences on the Camino. What set Oliver apart from others was his violin. He actually brought it on his journey. As the opportunity allowed he played in churches along the way. Sometimes as he started playing he was asked to leave, other times he played for hours. These serendipitous occasions were recorded by Oliver and made into a cd entitled Camino. He had a style unto his own.

On Oliver’s website his Camino story, like his music, is filled with insight and beauty.
