Sweden’s leading roots music ambassadors Väsen, have enthralled audiences around the world, from Japan to USA, to become festival favourites due to the sheer awe-inspiring class of the performance.

The trio, in constant demand, has travelled far and wide and is a big attraction in America, especially in Bloomington, Indiana, where they are so popular that local residents successfully petitioned to have a street named after them.

This will be a rare visit to the UK and Ireland (they have appeared at Bath International Music Festival, Celtic Connections and Shetland Folk Festivals previously) and earlier this year were the headline act at the big Fiddle Fest event at The Sage Theatre in Gateshead on Tyneside.

Reviews tend to be glowing in their praise and littered with terms such as “hypnotic”, “magnificent”, “enchanting” and “entrancing.”

Dirty Linen described them as “an acoustic tour de force”, while The Herald (Scotland) called them “one of the best folk acts in the world today,” arts reviewer Rob Adams adding: “move heaven and earth for a ticket!”

…If you think that sounds like a bit of a tonic, you’ve got it in a oner!

Venue: Malt Room – Cabaret, unreserved seating
Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
