Theyre back! SVER, the Epic Nordic Folk band, will be back in concert at Seattle Folklore Society!  Co-sponsored by Skandia Folkdance Society, SVER has its own take on traditional Norwegian folk music. They play original compositions as well as traditional tunes with fantastic, fresh arrangements, all rooted in the folk tradition.  SVERs energy and magnetic spirit will draw you in to experience the joy of their music.

Since the groups inception, Norwegian/Swedish folk rock band, SVER, has gone from strength to strength, playing extensively throughout Europe and the US, gaining a reputation as one of the most acclaimed live acts in the Nordic folk scene. SVER has released four albums: Reverie (2018), the long-awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed albums Fryd (2015), Fruen (2010), and SVER (2007).

Their newest album, Reverie, is recorded in Hallibakken Lydstudio, Norway, mixed/mastered by Mikael Lyander and Erik Ronström at Hedgehog Music, Sweden. The album is released November 30th on Folkhall Records!

SVER consists of Olav Luksengård Mjelva from Røros in the Sør- Trøndelag region of Norway (fiddle and hardangerfiddle), Anders Hall from Sweden (fiddle and viola), Leif Ingvar Ranøien (diatonic accordion), Adam Johansson (guitar) and Jens Linell from Sweden (Drums and percussion).

SVER has an enviable reputation for being one of the best live bands on the circuit.  Fiona Talkington, Songlines

SVER has often been described as sounding electric without electricity, and their flexible musicianship has also made them an attractive backing band for some of Scandinavia's leading singers in different genres. That has led to them playing on TV-shows, at large festivals, as well as securing positions on radio charts with the music ranging from folk to reggae/dancehall and rap. Their imaginative soundscapes, grooves, and melodies will take you on a journey over the Norwegian fjords and mountains, into the lively pubs and back out into the deep forest of their musicality.

Among the other visiting acts, Norwegian/Swedish instrumental five-piece SVER caused perhaps the biggest buzz, matching exquisite virtuosity with exuberant playfulness and terrific rhythmic drive... - Sue Wilson, The Scotsman

SVER mixes music from the depths of heritage with the freedoms of innovation. Youre unlikely to resist, so why try, just go with it.  Tim Carroll, Folkwords

Join us for an evening of engaging and energetic Scandinavian music!
