Nordic Folk meets Baroque: London Debut Concert

  • The Old Church Stoke Newington Church Street London, England, N16 9ES United Kingdom (map)

Stars of Scandinavian folk music Erik Rydvall and Olav Mjelva team up with violin virtuoso Max Baillie for their debut concert here in London at the gorgeous Old Church in Stoke Newington.

Having met in the snowy north of Norway in February, they posted some videos of their unique renditions of Bach; a few days and over 60k views later they were quickly picked up by Classic FM online, Norwegian Radio, and look forward to performing live on BBC Radio 3's In Tune program on April 2nd.

This is their special debut concert on Wednesday April 4th together.

They will present a brand new concert of music including Bach, Merula, and Couperin played in a unique way that brings together string traditions from the Norway, Sweden, and the Baroque period, alongside both traditional and original music from Scandinavia.

There is a bar open at the venue before the concert and during the interval.
