THE VÄSEN DUO
A rare UK opportunity to hear two of Sweden’s most celebrated and accomplished folk musicians!
Olov Johansson (nyckelharpa*) and Roger Tallroth (guitar/bouzouki/octave mandolin) are core members of the quite exceptional Väsen (‘vairsun’). They have been playing and recording together for over twenty years with their roots in the Swedish Folk tradition, but taking it in a whole new direction with their original compositions and arrangements. Their instrumental expertise is outstanding. Their performances set a new standard of musical empathy.
Prepare to be astonished.
Support from popular local folk trio The Rude Mechanicals.
*Nyckelharpa: ‘keyed fiddle’. A traditional Swedish instrument: Olov is recognised as one of the world’s best players.
