    Vetter og villskap

    Deeply engaged with new traditions and old innovations, the music of Vetter og villskap (‘Spirits and wildness’) comprises genre-blending and -bending conversations between Scandinavian Folk, Americana and a touch of Eastern influences. This is multicultural storytelling with and without words, from (Nordic) noir to joie de vivre.

    Both acts are performing under a 'Pay-what-you-want' understanding.  Let your friends know and be generous to those earning a living in the arts.
