Event description

Description

Returning for a fourth summer filling London’s green spaces with music. A concert like no other: unamplified, outdoors, around a fire. Gather together and listen.

Åkervinda

Iris, Lise, Linda and Agnes, the four singers of Åkervinda, take pride in their original and modern interpretation of the traditional folksongs of Scandinavia. The group’s name, Åkervinda, is inspired by a Swedish wildflower whose roots spread far and wide like rivers under the ground. Like the flower, gracefully entwining melodies, rock solid groove, and ever intriguing harmonies will take root in your mind. Like the flower, they will be impossible to remove.

Jazz singers at heart, the young women of Åkervinda share a deep love of folk music. Through improvisation, the group gives new life to traditional folk songs and stories of women throughout the ages. In 2014 they released their debut album “Kära Mor” (“Dear Mother”) and has been touring in Sweden, Denmark, the US and Canada since. Åkervinda has performed at Aarhus Vocal Festival, Malmö Arena, Hillerød Folk Festival and various folk festivals in Sweden, as well as museums and venues in Toronto, New York and Chicago. Collaborations has been made with the Swedish folk musician Jens Ulvsand, the Canadian fiddle virtuoso Jaron Freeman-Fox as well as the Swedish internationally renowned trio Nordic.

Åkervinda is: Iris Bergcrantz, Agnes Åhlund, Linda Bergström & Lise Kroner

Night

Night is a Kathmandu-based folk band formed in 2006, with members coming together from different musical backgrounds.

Night focuses on reviving lost and endangered Nepali instruments and creating new sounds rooted in collective Nepali heritage
and reintroducing said music and instruments to a world audience.

“Reworking Nepali traditions into stunning new soundscapes” - Making Tracks

Most of the songs are composed ‘in the field’ where we stay with the people in villages. After living with a melody, a song, or a drum rhythm over a period of time, we slowly start sensing its deeper meaning and through developing our own compositions, we try to express and share this understanding with others.

So the people, places and cultures of Nepal have been our greatest inspiration.
