“Dark, sensual, sonic theatre…compelling stuff” – Rolling Stone Australia
Minneapolis’ own Kari Tauring returns to the Cedar stage to present Songs of the Völva, the working title of her upcoming CD. A shift from her well known folk/rock material, this set is the culmination of her research, writing and performance of Nordic Roots music since 2003, her study of runes since 1989, and a life time of growing up in Norwegian American tradition. From Rune chants to Latvian lullabies, original tunes set to ancient Icelandic texts, and new twists on Norwegian folk standards Tauring’s work spans time and space. Nordic vocal techniques, kulning, kveding, huldre loll and lokk accompanied by Stav (stick rhythm) and guitar resonate through the tap root of Northern European heritage.
Dark and sardonic, Felonious Bosch begins the evening with music for the New Dark Ages. The powerful vocal style of singer Katy Thomasberg floats and soars over the rhythms of bassist Drew Miller and percussionist Renée Bracchi. Shaken up and blended with Nemo’s dynamic riffing on bouzoukis, cittern and guitar, David Stenshoel’s fiddle and Steve Clarke’s reeds, you get music that sparkles, with a centuries-old aftertaste.
