Tønder Festival Circle presents a concert series in Schweizerhalle (previously Tønder Culture Centre). Join us in supporting Tønder Festival from 20th to 29th August, 2021
On the bill this evening: Folk Spot, Mary Gauthier and Watkins Family Hour
Folk Spot Denmark 2021 (DK)
Since 2012, Folk Spot Denmark has been a fixture on the Tønder Festival programme, and even in a year without a proper Tønder Festival, you will not miss out. Eight folk and roots bands and soloists will play showcase concerts for two score specially invited international guests from the music business plus the always responsive Tønder Festival audience. The names of the musicians involved in Folk Spot Denmark this year will be published shortly.
Mary Gauthier (USA)
Welcome back to Grammy Nominated American songwriter Mary Gauthier, who excels at inviting listeners into her intense world of quietly epic stories in song. Mary Gauthier was born in 1962 in New Orleans. Her 1997 debut album Dixie Kitchen launched a career that has seen her recognised as one of USA’s most powerful and most personal songwriters and authors, whose first book Saved by a Song was published by St Martins Press this summer. Accompanying Mary Gauthier on stage at Schweizerhalle is violinist Michele Gazich, and harmony singer, guitar player Jaimee Harris.
Watkins Family Hour (USA)
Their Tønder Festival debut was planned for 2020, but now they are here, sister and brother Sara and Sean Watkins.
In 2015, they released Watkins Family Hour, a collection of covers including Dylan’s Going, Going, Gone and Grateful Dead’s Brokedown Palace. The spring of 2020 sees the release of Brother Sister, wherein Sara and Sean have written all the material.
Concert starts at 6:00 pm. Doors open 5:00 pm.
COVID 19 restrictions on number of tickets on sale. Minimum purchase: two tickets.
