Event description

Description

Live at City Arts is delighted to host this rare opportunity to catch a Scandi flavoured folk night of exceptional quality. Doggerland’s focus is on the common musical heritage of the North Sea and the lands around it. Their unusual line-up, their innovative musicality and their infectious enthusiasm result in a unique musical experience ; they call it North Sea music.

Doggerland consists of Norway-based Englishman Richard Burgess and Swede Anders Ådin who started playing together in 2005. It was a meeting between English and Scandinavian folk music, between powerful singing and delicate guitar playing, between concertina and hurdygurdy – and it worked! They have since explored this musical landscape both as a duo and in collaboration with other musicians.

Most recently they have extended their repertoire through a collaboration with Swedish National Folk Musician Jenny Gustafsson and her charismatic fiddle-playing. Jenny is now a regular feature of Doggerland’s live performances and tours.

In 2017 Doggerland released their second album – No Sadness of Farewell – and received rave reviews
from the folk music press:
This work is faultless in its performance and production, a great listen that continues to impress with
every time it’s played. (Living Tradition)
Burgess’s voice is strong and expressive… When Ådin plays guitar, the angels sing. (Rootzone, Denmark)
A real cracker! (Mike Harding folk show)


Plus Support from the wonderful Bill Kerry III

and some extra special suprise guests......

Booking is highly recomended as City Arts is a very intimate venue and we expect to sell out.
