Today 3 pm (this Saturday), Folk Music & Beyond presents Vasen in concert, recorded this past April at The Freight & Salvage in Berkeley. Vasen is one of Sweden’s leading folk bands, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. For fans of Nordic folk music, this performance is not-to-be-missed!
Vasen performed without its viola player Mikael Marin, whose work visa was held up for unknown reasons (luck of the draw, I guess). The remaining two members of Vasen Olov Johansson (nyckelharpa) and Roger Tallroth (guitar) carried on admirably as a duo without Mikael. Join us for our broadcast of Vasen’s concert at 91.7 or listen on-line
