Music Programme 2018
There was magic in the air when Northern Assembly first met in Dina Danielsdatter’s flat. For six months she and Andreas Bevan had been writing songs, and with Jens Hedegaard and Jesper Smalbro they put together a debut EP. The music draws on American folk traditions, but is also coloured by Dina and Andreas’ travels in idyllic southern England, the wild Faroes, the Norwegian mountians and Africa’s high plateaux. 2015 brought concerts in IKEA and at the SPOT Festival, and Northern Assembly first performed at Tønder Festival as part of the Folk Spot programme. Since then, Northern Assembly have played in South Korea, and last year they supported Jacob Dinesen on his sell-out autumn tour. This year they release the album Death, Won’t You Marry Me, where Northern Assembly tackle taboos and sing of the big questions in life.
