Presented by the Alberta Rose Theatre
NNW MEMBERS $30
Olov Johansson: Nyckelharpa
Roger Tallroth: 12 - string Guitar
Musicians with a singular sound, a playful yet accomplished interplay that seems to defy the laws of physics, an intensity with a great sense of humor, and modernity rooted in tradition. Väsen, a Swedish acoustic group, is now in its 30th year of touring together.
The parts: an adventurous 12-string guitar and a nyckelharpa (a “keyed fiddle”) deeply rooted in the traditions of Swedish folk music. All are instrumental virtuosos in their own right, and together they form a unique supernatural being. To experience Väsen is to witness ensemble playing at its finest.
See more on Väsen's website here.
Nordic Finn Ware will be open beginning at 6:30 pm prior to the show!
Nordia House does have a 50 spot car lot for our patrons, however this still limits the amount of spots available. Street parking is available on 89th & 90th avenues. Additionally a shuttle service will be available from the West Hills Unitarian Universalist Church (8470 SW Oleson Road, Portland, OR 97223). The church is about 1/2 mile East of Nordia House.
