SVER plays grand Norwegian folk music with relentless energy and seductive spark. Join in a fantastic musical journey as they weave dreamy tunes with pounding and swinging renditions of traditional dance music along with their own original compositions. Their magnetic spirit and energy will draw you in to experience the joy of their music.
Their third album “Fryd,” is the long-anticipated sequel to Fruen. It aims for new heights with freshly composed fiddle tunes, mixed with old tunes in new form. “An album that inarguably lives up to its title, which means joy.” – Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman.
Norwegian-Swedish SVER has put on countless performances since 2008 at festivals and clubs all over Europe. The last four years SVER has collaborated with the Swedish dance-hall artist Snakka San (and created the new genre Folkhall), playing in Scandinavia and have had multiple songs on the radio charts in Norway and Sweden.
SVER will be performing at Lopez Center on Jan. 18 at 7:30 p.m. as part of their winter West Coast tour.
SVER consists of Olav Luksengard Mjelva (fiddle and hardangerfiddle), Anders Hall (fiddle and viola), Leif Ingvar Ranoien (diatonic accordion), Adam Johansson (guitar) and Jens Linell (drums and percussion).
