Harald Haugaard Quartet, Danish Folk Music

Harald Haugaard is one of Denmark’s most sensational musicians and has toured throughout the world. His characteristic style offers contemporary Danish folk music deeply rooted in tradition. He’s an inventive virtuoso fiddle player and a passionate musician.

Harald’s quartet is joined in this special tour by singer Helene Blum. Together, they perform with great presence a delicate blend of old Danish dance tunes and songs, Haugaard’s beautiful compositions, and thrilling improvisations.

Helene Blum has captivated audiences throughout Europe, and from Canada to Japan, with her intensely expressive, crystal clear voice. Using ancient songs and ballads as a base, she reinvents them with contemporary expressions and mixes them elegantly with newly written songs.
