Kloster (DK)

It’s a special pleasure for us to welcome the Danish band Kloster back to Fanø Free Folk Festival. The band is not only one of the leading acts of the Danish pastoral neo-folk scene, they also performed at the very first version of Fanø Free Folk Festival. Since then they have released several critically acclaimed releases and played at big festivals like Roskilde Festival. However, the band – led by songwriter Mikael R. Andreasen – still evokes a calm and intimate feeling drawing on medieval imagery and lyrics but also addressing the struggles of modern man. Without a doubt, Mikael R. Andreasen is one of Denmark’s finest songwriters and indeed he did receive the Steppeulven award as best songwriter in 2016 for Kloster’s latest release “Half Dream, Half Epiphany”.
