Music Programme 2019

Subdued singing to an indie folk accompaniment of largely acoustic instruments, the songs moodily atmospheric… 39 year-old Gregory Alan Isakov was born in South Africa and lives today in Colorado in USA. His time is split between extensive music tours and intensive field work at home on the farm. One barn houses his fully-equipped studio, where he spends his evenings and nights recording and producing his songs. Hence the title of his most recent album Evening Machines, from 2018. “I often spend the night hours in the light from VU metres and recording machines,” writes Gregory Alan Isakov on his website. He began his musical career at 16 in a band. Later he toured with songwriter Kelly Joe Phelps, and that set him off on his solo career as a songwriter. His first solo album appeared in 2003. Gregory Alan Isakov has already performed in Denmark several times, most recently in Store Vega in Copenhagen in November 2018. His only Danish festival appearance in 2019.
