Tønder Festival’s 44 years have fostered some traditions that have become essential. One of them is Niels Hausgaard’s concerts, which have been an integral part of Tønder Festival through the decades. Yes – he will be here this year again, giving concerts in the Bolero spiegeltent. Niels Hausgaard is one of a kind, and he has a wide audience. His annual winter and spring concerts are a legend in themselves: a sell-out, four-month tour of the country. This year the show was entitled På egen hånd (Single-handed). It seems that Niels Hausgaard is in his element in front of an audience. He goes on stage with his lifelong experience and a show that is loosely organised but gives him plenty of room for improvisation and response to audience reactions. To quote his website: “The only thing more boring than learning stuff by heart is listening to what others have learnt by heart. Religious chanting is not for me.”
