Åkervinda Matinee

Åkervinda Matinee

Sweden and Denmark’s Åkervinda perform their unique, modern Scandinavian folksongs. Jazz singers at heart, and influenced by artists such as Björk and The Real Group, they share a deep love of folk music. Through improvisation, they breathe new life into traditional songs, singing stories of women through the ages. Their appearance at Marchland marks the opening of a UK tour and the release of their latest album. Have a listen to this impromptu moment of Nordic vocal music from Åkervinda. It might just tease out a few goosebumps - Tobias Elof, The Swingles. Akervinda will also be joining us on the final Saturday for our presentation of A Vanished Kingdom, giving us their perspective on women’s history and cross border co-operation.
