BRT Presents: Väsen

Blackstone River Theatre
549 Broad Street, Cumberland, RI

riverfolk.org

The word väsen has several meanings - spirit, essence, noise. This talented Swedish trio conveys the essence of Swedish traditional music with a joyfulness that is very likely to raise your spirits... don't miss their BRT debut! Väsen is a band people rave about - mere praise doesn't seem to be enough. According to the Utne Reader, the band "treads an enchanted territory between classical, folk, and pop." National Public Radio's All Things Considered puts it this way: "The absurdly broad term world music is rendered useless in the face of these musicians who play with such genuine passion and glee that everything on the globe seems to disappear except their hometown fires.
