Väsen

Väsen have deep roots in the traditions of Swedish music, but their sheer brilliance and inventiveness has taken it in new directions.

The trio of Mikael Marin (5-string viola), Olov Johansson (nyckelharpa), and Roger Tallroth (12-string guitar) are all exceptional players in their own right. Put them together and they have a musical affinity that makes them about the tightest, most exciting band in the acoustic music world.

They’ve built an international reputation over twenty-five years of playing and touring – but not enough of it in the UK. They made it to Ropetackle in 2014 for a sold-out show and left the audience astounded, and we’re lucky enough to have them pay a return visit during this year’s brief tour.

If you’ve heard them, you’ll know this is going to be a rare and special evening. If not, get ready to be surprised and delighted by the amazing sounds of Sweden’s finest folk trio. Simply unmissable.
