Northern Resonance - Vision of Three
Northern Resonance is the Scandinavian string trio that takes newly composed folk music into enormous soundscapes. With their previously untested combination of instruments; viola d’amore, hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa they let Scandinavian music meet explosive rhythms and grand chamber-like arrangements that takes folk music in a new direction. All members are highly skilled and accomplished musicians, rooted in traditional music. With an intense musical connection that is rare to come across, they invite you into their world of compositions. There is great life in their tunes, and the trio knows how to bring it out. Their debut album that was released in 2020 got nominated for a Swedish Grammy and the band are going to release their second album in 2024.
“With their close interplay, the trio moves effortlessly outside the soundscape of the tradition but moves just as easily within it. The instrument’s many resonance strings become the trio's musical bloodstream that is effervescent with both detail and boundlessness. It pulsates with the feeling of home as well as a desire to discover new land.” — Lira Music Magazine
Featuring Special Guest: Monique Clare
Wielding a cello and strikingly crafted vocals, indie-folk songwriter Monique Clare embodies the cathartic lyricism of Björk and the rhythmic energy of The Waifs. Her disarmingly candid stage presence is born from years of international touring with The Maes and playing cello for everyone from Kate Miller-Heidke to Eminem. Her 2022 debut ‘Sight’ earned her a Queensland Music Award and Contemporary Album of the Year at the Australian Folk Music Awards, and tracks a journey through trauma and pain to growth and love. With a smile as wide as the Cheshire cat's, and an audacious tendency to reveal her deepest secrets onstage, her live show is offbeat and mesmerising.
