A new driving force in Nordic world music is the young Danish trio, Dreamers’ Circus. Contemporary and endlessly innovative in their approach, they draw inspiration from the deep traditions of folk music in the region and reshape them into something bright, shiny and new.
Dreamers’ Circus are: Nikolaj Busk (Danish) on piano and accordion; Ale Carr (Swedish) on Nordic cittern, and Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (Danish), also of the Danish String Quartet, on violin.
Dreamers’ Circus display inventiveness and talent in their approach to performances that include music from Denmark and Sweden as well as Finland, Norway and the far reaches of the windswept Faroe Islands. The ensemble has won five prestigious Danish Music Awards. The trio collaborates regularly with the Danish String Quartet and the Copenhagen Philharmonic and performs with other orchestras.
