In 2018, television viewers in Denmark could accompany Dreamers’ Circus to the Faroe Islands with nature broadcaster Søren Ryge. The result was two prime time programmes wherein the trio gave their musical impressions of the Faroes’ breathtaking scenery. Dreamers’ Circus is accordionist and pianist Nikolaj Busk, cittern player and fiddler Ale Carr and violinist Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen. The latter has been nominated for an American Grammy award with The Danish String Quartet. Dreamers’ Circus play music growing out of Nordic folk music. Adding influences from classical music, jazz and electronic ambient, Dreamers’ Circus build a delicate tonal universe of sweeping atmospheric passages punctuated by intense, powerful folk tunes, enough to get any audience on their feet. Most of the music is contemporary, but the trio’s respect for the tradition is revealed when dances from the western islands pop up. Dreamers’ Circus have played throughout the world, from Roskilde Festival to Utzon’s opera house in Sydney.
