Jensen, Bugge & Høirup in Montmagny, French Canada 2013

The year 2013 turned out to be a really exciting year with lots of unforgettable experiences and challenges, and everything is suggesting that 2014 will be at least as eventfull

The old year offered some very nice concerts at dozens of Danish and international venues and festivals, from Tórshavn Domkirke (cathedral) in the Faroe Islands, and the old movie theater in the small French – Canadian town, Montmagny, to Devonport Folk Club in the abandoned bunker on the local mountain, with a beautiful view over New Zealand’s Auckland by night.

Unfortunately, we lost the great old accordionist Thyspillemand Karl Skaarup in November, but he will not be forgotten. We got to celebrate his 85th anniversary as a musician in Vestervig Church in October, and he will continue to inspire all of us who have met him and played with him and listened to him!

The new year will offer plenty of music recordings and concerts in Denmark and abroad, with both the band Himmerland as well as with accordionist Mette Kathrine Jensen and violinist Kristian Bugge. In addition, the American Café Orchestra is meeting in Finland in late June to teach and play on Haapavesi Folk Festival, and Lydom, Bugge & Høirup will be traveling all over Denmark playing traditional Danish music.

During the year of 2014, I will travel in Denmark and Germany, Belgium, Great Britain, Italy and Australia, and I ‘m already looking forward to meeting all of you. Have a wonderful Christmas and a wonderful New Year !
