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.
Niels Hausgaard (DK)
The Danish singer, poet, satirist, songwriter, polemicist and entertainer who has had pride of place at Tønder Festival since the 70s. Niels Hausgaard is one of a kind and he reaches a wide audience. No two Niels Hausgaard concerts are alike, since he leaves himself ample room for improvisation and plays off and with the audience. He maintains that the success of a concert depends on the contact he achieves with his audience.
The Deep Dark Woods (CAN) Their last visit to Tønder Festival in 2012 proved that there is reason to expect great things of the return of the Canadian band The Deep Dark Woods. Fronted by singer and guitarist Ryan Boldt, The Deep Dark Woods deliver original songs with respect for the artistry, the narration and the traditions. They reference Scots and Irish folk songs and American country blues, there is also space for surrealism, emotive murder ballads and close vocal harmonies.
