Since the groups inception, Norwegian/Swedish folkrock band, SVER, has gone from strength to strength, playing extensively throughout Europe and the US, gaining a reputation as one of the most acclaimed live acts in the Nordic folk scene. SVER has released four albums: Reverie (2018), the long-awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed albums Fryd (2015), Fruen (2010), and SVER (2007).
SVER has often been described as sounding electric without electricity, and their flexible musicianship has also made them an attractive backing band for some of Scandinavia's leading singers in different genres. That has lead to them playing on TV-shows, at large festivals, as well as securing positions on radio charts with the music ranging from folk to reggae/dancehall and rap. Their imaginative soundscapes, grooves, and melodies will take you on a journey over the Norwegian fjords and mountains, into the lively pubs and back out into the deep forest of their musicality.
Among the other visiting acts, Norwegian/Swedish SVER caused perhaps the biggest buzz, matching exquisite virtuosity with exuberant playfulness and terrific rhythmic drive... - Sue Wilson, The Scotsman
+ Kat Wallace & David Sasso
Kat Wallace and David Sasso met playing hard and fast bluegrass with New Haven string band Five in the Chamber. Their shared background in classical music and affinity for all things trad brought them together to form an intimate and virtuosic duo. Both singers and multi-instrumentalists, Wallace and Sasso orbit around traditional folk, original songwriting, and the ever-evolving Americana movement. Their effortless vocal lines and innovative harmonization command the stage while allowing space for each song to tell its story. Their debut album, Stuff of Stars, is set to release in August 2019.
