He is also one of the pillars of The Foghorn Stringband, who played here in 2006. Reeb Willms, vocal, guitar, is a singer and songwriter with a background in American roots music. Her harmony singing with Caleb Klauder is central to their band’s sound. Their only Danish festival in 2023. They’ll be playing their own concert at Tønder Festival and moreover a Sunday concert with a special guest soloist: Lukas Graham. The Danish singer and songwriter has appeared several times at Tønder Festival in recent years. As a boy, Lukas Graham was often at Tønder Festival with his father. Lukas Graham recounts: “My dad was Caleb Klauder’s booker in Scandinavia, when I was a teenager. That’s how I know Caleb and his various bands. Already back then I sang with them when they toured Denmark. I was very inspired by Caleb’s way of singing, and the live energy of the band. It is just wonderful to get a chance to sing with him again.”
