ISLAND HOPPING IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN!

21 Jul

One early morning a bit outside the village of Hattavik (in the background, at Fugloy, Faroe Islands. It is raining but it is a lovely day, and the sea is calm.

Well home after a fantastic tour on the Faroe Islands, with lots of music, sun, sailing, whisky and dried fish, I find it difficult not to cheer. What a tour, what a beautiful nature, og what wonderful people.

Vi performed many places, amongst them the islands of Mykines, Fugloy and Nolsoy, and we had a great tour.

At the same time we managed to arrange and rehearse a lot of traditional as well as original music, and got inspired by, amongst others, the Danish baritone sax duo Charlotte Andersson and Jeanette Balland, and the Russian-Faroese duo Vera Kondrateva on vocals and jews harps, and Kristian Blak on piano.

Now we’ll see what these exciting meetings might lead to, one thing is for sure: You will hear some quite new music when Jensen & Bugge + Høirup perform their dance concert in Danseladen at Musik over Præstø Fjord Festival on Friday August 11th from 9:30pm to 22:45pm

This concert is focused on music arranged for dancing as well as concert, and we’ll record it all on video.

We hope to se you there!
