Gangspil – Award-Winning Danish Duo in Concert
March 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Don’t miss the opportunity to listen to Gangspil, the award-winning #Danish duo with Sonnich Lydom on accordion and harmonica, and Kristian Bugge on fiddle.
The two musicians visit the American Swedish Institute to perform traditional dance tunes and songs, with everything from wild polkas and jigs to lyrical waltzes, fiery reels and happy “hopsas” and exotic “Sønderhoning” dance tunes from the famous Island of #Fanø.
In 2016, Gangspil received the “Tradition Award” at the Danish Music Awards (the Danish #Grammy) and their performances are remarkable live experiences spiced with humor and stories from their many years on the road. They’ve played more than 100 shows in North America since 2015 – and many performances in other parts of the world. The group is a well-known name in traditional and folk music circles in Scandinavia and abroad. More info. at http://www.trad.dk/ and www.kristianbugge.com
