Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse
SVER play epic Nordic folk music with relentless energy and seductive spark. Ranging from the very dreamy to a swinging, pounding and sweaty madness – you are invited to the party, greeted by a welcoming primal force that pulls you into the dance. SVER’s latest album “Reverie” (2018) – their fourth release – arrives as they celebrate 10 years together as a quintet.
SVER has often been described as “sounding electric without electricity”, and their flexible musicianship has also made them an attractive backing band for some of Scandinavia’s leading singers in different genres. 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.
“Fru Skagerrak is the perfect combination of some of my favorite things: Scandinavian fiddle music and interesting, beautiful, talented women I can look up to, but who I am honored to call my friends as well! The joy is evident in the companionship and in the music of these 3 powerhouse women from 3 different Scandinavian countries and fiddle traditions. Their combined sound is one of effortless beauty, grooving dance energy, and elegant arrangements. Not to be missed!”
– Natalie Haas, Cellist
The music of Fru Skagerrak takes you on a journey through Scandinavia; from lowlands to mountains, from slow airs to lively polkas, in major and in minor, and everything in between. Fru Skagerrak- ”Lady Skagerrak” – are three master musicians – one from each Scandinavian country: Maja Kjær Jacobsen from Denmark, Elise Wessel Hildrum from Norway and Anna Lindblad from Sweden.
