This ambitiously inventive Nordic trio is one of the world’s most talked-about acts in the acoustic realm. Their hit “The World Was Waiting” feels spot-on, as we’ve been eagerly awaiting their return ever since their joyous, sold-out Middlebury performance in March 2020, just before the pandemic hit.
They mine their solid backgrounds in traditional and roots music to present a genre-bending amalgam of folk sensitivity, jazz-tinged improvisation, and classical complexity, all distilled through an openness to popular music influences. They display virtuosic and incendiary musical abilities across a range of instruments that includes fiddle, accordion, piano, and cittern.
“This is music that paints images in your mind, that fires the imagination…Dreamers’ Circus celebrate more than the colour and vibrancy of Scandinavian music, they celebrate the ability it has to drive inspiration and innovation, and place themselves firmly in the vanguard of that movement.”—Folk Radio
