On October 28th 2017 at 11:30am to 02:00pm, I’ll be doing a pretty special concert with the awarded Danish fiddler Kristian Bugge and the American fiddler and tradition carrier Jamie Fox at Farum Kulturhus, Copenhagen Denmark.

We are offering a unique concert of traditional music from Denmark, Canada and the US, spiced up with a few old Danish songs and a hand full of new compositions. All served with a twinkel in the eye and some good stories from life on the international forl and world music scene.
