This October, Sydney River, Ingonish and Inverness will welcome Väsen, four of Sweden's best musicians who combine the traditional sounds of the viola and nyckelharpa, and the more modern sounds of alternatively tuned 12-string guitar and percussion ensemble. Combining jazz, classical, dance, and folk elements, Väsen manages at once to be delicate and intensely energetic.
