Three musicians with a singular sound, a playful yet accomplished interplay that seems to defy the laws of physics, an intensity with a great sense of humor, and modernity rooted in tradition. The Swedish trio Väsen is a true phenomenon on the Nordic roots scene. They have played together for more than 30 years, which is evident in their almost telepathic musical communication.
The parts: a five-string viola of sophisticated symphonic taste, an adventurous 12-string guitar, and a nyckelharpa (a “keyed fiddle”) deeply rooted in the traditions of Swedish folk music. All three are instrumental virtuosos in their own right, and together they form a unique supernatural being. To experience Väsen is to witness ensemble playing at its finest.
In 2019 – to mark their 30 year anniversary as a trio – they released the album “Rule of 3” to wide critical acclaim. It is with much joy that ALICE can now present an intimate show with this amazing group. The show is presented with support from PULS.
Please note that the concert will be seated, with limited capacity.
