There is less than a month to go until this year’s Winter Festival in Strib, which begins on February 10, and at least in the musical field, spring starts. Now the program for the Café scene is also in place. On Friday, the festival opens here with Strib Skole’s choir. They sing together with Tine Vingaard, who later in the evening stands in Hall 1 on the big stage with her band Vingaard.
When the festival has been opened by Steen Møller from Middelfart Municipality, the duo Glimtvi is the first musical feature with country/pop tones, and they are followed up by the trio Ragna, who present Nordic melodies and songs including with the sonorous notes of a key harp. Then follows bluegrass music from Scenegræs and more folk music when Kragetær takes the stage, before the Blue Hour Band closes the evening.
There will, among other things, Nordic folk music sounds when the Roskilde duo Windflower opens a long day of concerts already at 9.30, before there is children’s entertainment. The duo with the singer-songwriter Anne Iben as frontman will be an exciting acquaintance with its mix of roots, indie and Americana. The trio Roaring Maggie has roots in Ireland, Scotland and England, and it presents both traditional and own interpretations of people from their respective homelands.
As usual, Flemming Walther has Morten Husted in his Project Walther, but this time has expanded with Michael Torp and Michael Graubæk. They play country, roots and bluegrass and don’t go out of their way to tell good stories either. (top photo)
From the rest of the Saturday programme, it should be mentioned that the winner of last year’s Helgepris, Kristian Bach, will give his personal songs and texts for reflection. And you can also look forward to the Springsteen-like voice and songs of the firm guitarist Mikkel Bøggild. And there are many more talented musicians on the program, both Saturday and Sunday, which can be seen on:
