As a consequence of the widespread situation with Corona virus/COVID-19 and the prohibitions from the Danish authorities to close all cultural institutions until May 10, the concert with Väsen has sadly been cancelled. Tickets will be refunded via Billetto. We’re working on a new date with the group. Please stay tuned on updates about ALICE and the Corona virus situation here.
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.
