DREAMERS' CIRCUS

DREAMERS' CIRCUS

“It bristles with confidence, with nods to music as diverse as
Danish folk and Erik Satie.”
-fRoots Magazine

“It was a luminous concert that spoke
to all senses...”
- GAFFA- Copenhagen, Denmark

“The watchword here is 'expansive,' for the trio crafts remarkably open vistas from humble means...”
-RootsWorld

DREAMERS’ CIRCUS

A new driving force in Nordic world music is the young Danish trio, Dreamers’ Circus. Contemporary and endlessly innovative in their approach, they draw inspiration from the deep traditions of folk music in the region and reshape them into something bright, shiny and new.

Dreamersʼ Circus are: Nikolaj Busk (DK) on piano and accordion, Ale Carr (SWE) on Nordic cittern and Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (DK), also of the Danish String Quartet, on violin.

Dreamersʼ Circus display inventiveness and talent in their approach to performances that include music from Denmark and Sweden as well as Iceland and the far reaches of the Faroe Islands and Greenland.  The ensemble has won five prestigious Danish Music Awards and toured throughout Europe and beyond, with performances in Japan and the Sydney Opera House in Australia. An American tour is planned for 2019. The trio collaborates regularly with the Danish String Quartet and the Copenhagen Philharmonic and performs with the BBC Scottish Orchestra in 2018.

Dreamers’ Circus views their traditional roots as a point of departure and know that tradition should not be a straitjacket. This adventurous attitude, coupled with their outstanding musicianship, has brought the band to the forefront of the Nordic folk and world music scene.
