Väsen
Thu, Apr 20, 7:30 - 9:30 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
"The absurdly broad term 'world music is rendered useless in the face of these four musicians who play with such genuine passion and glee that everything on the globe seems to disappear except their hometown fires. This is 'local music' in the best sense of the word--believable, human-scaled and fluent in the international language of musical interplay." -- National Public Radio's "All Things Considered"
"Väsen treads an enchanted territory between classical, folk, and pop." -- Utne Reader
"The sound may be traditional, but the attitude is completely modern, mixing up the ideas of folk, the virtuosity of prog, and the humor of the insane asylum into a cuisinart of acoustic bliss. Visualize whirled music." - Wired
"...a very effective contemporary sounding acoustic tour de force." -- Dirty Linen
The extraordinary cutting edge Swedish folk trio Väsen returns to The Shedd Institute's Jaqua Concert Hall for another evening of absolutely superb music. Väsen is Olov Johansson (nyckelharpa), Mikael Marin (viola), and Roger Tallroth (12-string guitar).
