SVER - Music of Sweden and Norway
WHEN: 7 p.m. Jan. 7
WHERE: Odd Fellows Lodge, 212 Spring St., Nevada City
TICKETS: $20-$30 available at stringsconcerts.com
Strings Concerts presents SVER playing grand Norwegian folk music at the historic Odd Fellows Lodge in downtown Nevada City.
“With relentless energy and seductive spark 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,” a press release said.
Members of the group have performed in Nevada City as part of Alasdair Fraser's annual Ceilidh in the Park and taught at Sierra Fiddle Camp.
SVER has often been described as “sounding electric without electricity,” and their flexible musicianship has them backing some of Scandinavia’s leading singers. That has lead to performances on television, main stage festivals and positions in the radio charts with the music ranging from folk to reggae/dancehall and rap.
