Gangspil (Sonnich Lydom and Kristian Bugge)

Gangspil returns to DC!  Gangspil will guarantee you an entertaining journey through the traditions of Danish folk music. These lively musicians perform old dance tunes and songs from every corner of their Scandinavian home country--from rural islands like Læsø to the metropolitan Copenhagen—as well as a few of their own compositions. Expect everything from wild polkas and jigs to lyrical waltzes, fiery reels and happy hopsas, plus the exotic “Sønderhoning” dance tunes from the famous Island of Fanø and long forgotten songs from all over the country. An unforgettable experience spiced up with humor and stories from their many years on the road. Sonnich and Kristian will also talk about the traditions from back home, how they learned, and how the music lives on today and is part of the famous Danish hygge!  For more information/samples: http://www.trad.dk/.

There will be dancing (no street shoes please) after the concert.  

Suggested Donation: $25.
