About This Event:

The folk band Jaerv has been a crowd favorite ever since their first performance for the Susquehanna Folk Music Society in 2008. They are back again, this time for a conversation with SFMS Executive Director Jess Hayden and SFMS Board member Grace Lee, AND a full-length concert performed at the beautiful Tower of Gothenburg Cathedral in Sweden.

Join us on this webpage on Sunday, July 19 at 7:30 pm to watch "together in spirit." It'll be archived after that, so you can watch it anytime. You can also watch it with us on Facebook Live.

Jaerv is an award-winning Swedish quintet. They present an extroverted, vigorous and heartfelt folk music with influences from both jazz and pop music. Together, the five members have created a homogeneous, vivid sound that has established Jaerv on the folk music scene as well as in many other forums. Rooted in several different musical traditions, Jaerv offers a varied stage performance where vocal, five-voiced tunes blend in with energetic dances and free improvisations.

Jaerv is an internationally well-known act and has toured the U.S., Japan, Spain, Scotland, Ireland, Finland, and Norway among other countries. Since March, when they performed live for SFMS, Jaerv has been busy honing their craft with a series of live-streamed concerts. In June they were proud to be featured on Swedish National Television as part of the yearly Midsummer’s Concert. This was the largest audience that they ever played for and SFMS hopes that this exciting opportunity brings this talented quintet the recognition that they so justly deserve. The band is tentatively planning to return to the US in June of 2021.
