The group met in a pub during a folk festival in 2009. Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (violin) was jamming with Ale Carr (cittern). Nikolaj Busk happened in and joined in on the piano. This was Dreamers’ Circus first performance. Dreamers’ Circus is folk music of 2016 – enthusiasm and innovation founded on tradition. They are joined by award-winning dancer Selene Muños, who adds a fascinating visual aspect to the music. These three young musicians have set out on a dream journey in the world of folk music. A journey that includes detours to visit Sibelius, Vivaldi, Mozart, Grieg and Nielsen – and fortunately a visit to the Bergen International Festival. Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen violin Ale Carr cittern Nikolaj Busk piano, accordion On their way here the reputation of their energetic live performances has reached far and wide.

We really should sing the praises of our towns, especially Bergen. Although Bergen has a bountiful bouquet of songs narrating happenings and yearnings in streets and homes, many of the old favourites are timeworn. In Songs of Bergen, musician and lyricist Gabriel Fliflet has invited Frode Grytten, Stig Holmås and a number of other writers to create entirely new Bergen songs – tender and burlesque, sober and nostalgic. Gabriel Fliflet sets music to the lyrics and performs the songs with musicians Jørgen Sandvik, Kristoffer Chelsom Vogt and various treasures of musical guests. The wing-man for the evening is Bergen’s young, rhythmical poet Erlend O. Nødtvedt, who pens new texts for the occasion. He teases and lampoons the songs in his own uniquely perceptive style. Gabriel Fliflet has had a number of commissioned compositions and composed Åresong for the Bergen International Festival in 2010 with Jon Fosse.
