Scandinavian folk roots band Basco really want to tell you some stories.
Their music is complex and varied — from hard-hitting, high-speed reels full of rosin dust and sweat, through melancholy tunes that tell of loves won and lost, and through fitful fever dreams of fractal complexity.
Basco’s material is nearly all original, stealing shamelessly and frivolously from Nordic, English, Celtic and American idioms to create an organic mix of jazz, folk and classical music.
Last year saw the release of their fourth studio album as well as tours with Jullie Hjetland and The Danish Radio Big Band, and a busy touring schedule with concerts in Scandinavia, UK and around Europe.
See them at Quay Arts, Newport, on Tuesday, February 13, at 7.30pm.
