Two early spring concerts!

31 Mar

Kristian Bugge, Jamie Fox & Morten Alfred spring 2018

I am looking forwards these days to a couple of rare concerts with good friends and colleagues, the Native American Métis fiddler, Jamie Fox, and the traditional Danish fiddler, Kristian Bugge.

In May 2017 we toured in the US, performing a few concerts at NorthWest FolkLife in Seattle (Washington, and at a few venues in Vancouver (Brittish Columbia), Missoula (Montana) and New York City.

Since then we have been doing a handful of dances and concerts in, amongst others, the Danish cities of Roskilde, Farum and Odense, where we have enjoyed playing for a lot of music enthusiasts.

And we are continuing the concerts in Denmark, first in Musikhuset Aarhus, on Sunday April 1st at 3:00pm, and then in Gaard Bageriet at Mors on Sunday April 22nd at 2:30.

The music is a blend of traditional Danish dance tunes, and tunes from the Métis fiddle tradition, “spiced up” with a couple of old Danish songs, and what ever we might decide on the spot, including a few stories about the many strong personalities that we have met on our tours.

I hope that you will enjoy this short teaser. We are playing a bit of the Métis tune “Sitting Bull”, that Jamie taught us.
