Ganspil Coming to Arts Center in Troy Nov 26
The Arts Center of the Capital Region is hosting Grammy Winning Danish performers Gangspil in their 2019 tour on November 26.
Sonnich Lydom (accordion, harmonica), Kristian Bugge (fiddle) and Vidar Skrede guitar) will guarantee you an entertaining and variated journey through the traditions of Danish folk music. This lively trio performs old dance tunes and songs from every corner of their Scandinavian home country. From rural islands like Læsø to the metropol Copenhagen, including a few of their own compositions. Expect everything from wild polkas and jigs to lyrical waltzes, fiery reels and happy hopsas, plus the exotic Sønderhoning dance tunes from the famous Island of Fanø, and long forgotten songs from all over the country. An unforgettable live experience spiced up with humor and stories from their many years on the road.
Gangspil have toured intensively and played more than 100 shows in North America since 2015 – as well as a good number in other parts of the world. The group has become a well-known name in trad- and folk circles both home in Scandinavia and abroad. In 2016 Gangspil received the “Tradition Award” at the Danish Music Awards (Danish Grammy).
