Väsen-Duo Online

For the last 30 years, Mikael Marin and Olov Johansson played together in Väsen. Now as a duo they're continuing to create a new musical vision, firmly rooted in the folk traditions of their native Sweden but unmistakeably fresh and modern. Their music is playful and intense, full of humor, and they have an almost telepathic rapport onstage. Live-streamed concert and Q&A on Saturday, March 27. MORE
