“One of the finest musical ensembles playing today” BBC Radio 3
All three of Väsen are instrumental virtuosos in their own right. To experience Väsen is to witness ensemble playing at its finest. With origins deeply rooted in the forests and rich earth of the Swedish countryside, theirs is a tradition spiced with consummate playing skills. But this is more than just a traditional sound - there's a playfulness to their music, a joyousness, and a delight in making exciting new arrangements of centuries-old tunes, and new originals inspired by the tradition
“Exquisite” The Guardian
Heidi Talbot's music crosses the ages, jumps into the unknown, traverses oceans and musical styles – from folk, through Americana, to classic pop, and back again. Heidi's music revels in the comforting and restorative powers of music, never maudlin or overly dark but gently uplifting, cheering and enlightening. Heidi will be performing tonight with her trio which includes her husband John McCusker on violin, cittern and whistles.
