Tønder Festival has invited some of the country’s leading folk music talents to write new music inspired by the traditional music of the Danish islands and regions. The band Som Os centres round four young musicians, who, with their distinguished guests, will guide us round Mid Jutland, South Funen, South Zealand, Læsø and Bornholm, all areas with distinct historical, musical traditions. “Our purpose is to demonstrate that Denmark bears a hidden treasure trove of musical gems, and Tønder Festival has given us the chance to show that traditional and new music can live together,” says Annelene Toft Christensen, violinist in Som Os. The band is: Tim Ewé, French horn; Michael Hornhaver, guitar; and Jakob Kragesand, double bass. The guest musicians are: Anja Præst, clarinet; Ditte Fromseier, violin; Andreas Tophøj, violin; Henrik Jansberg, violin; and Mette Katrine Jensen, accordion. These musicians have played in some of the top folk bands in the country, among them: Basco, Phønix, Mynsterland, Jensen & Bugge, Fromseier/Hockings, Jansberg Band, VÍÍK & Sherzandum. Som Os and their guests will play for a dance on Friday evening, following a music and dance workshop.
