Dagny i Forsen (SE)


Back in 2015 the Swedish trio Lyset i forsen visited Fanø Free Folk Festival with a stunning concert in Sønderho Church. In the meantime the trio has expanded, as they teamed up with another trio, Dagny. The result, of course, is Dagny i Forsen. A new sextet (or “double trio”) which has already impressed us with their first album. The album was hailed by Swedish roots magazine Lira as one of the finest folk releases of 2018, and we tend to agree. With instruments like violin, viola, viola d’amore, saxophone and clarinet mixed with occasional vocal harmonies, Dagny i Forsen creates playful and beautiful improvisations and delivers a timeless take on the rich Nordic folk music traditions.

The concert is supported by PULS.
