The playful sounds of Swedish folk band Väsen fill the iconic Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum as part of Celtic Connections 2024. Founded in 1989 by duo Olov Johansson (nyckelharpa) and Mikael Marin (viola), Väsen’s music is intense and full of humour. They create their very own musical language, as modern as it is ancient, and with its foundation firmly rooted in the traditional tunes of Uppland.
Completing the bill is Catriona McKay & Ruth Potter, who perform the gorgeous Double Harp Concerto ‘Fragile Beauty’, written for the pair by Norwegian composer Kim André Arnesen. Catriona McKay is a fearless and innovative musician widely recognised for her unique style, inventiveness and daring rhythmic use of the Scottish harp. Her long-time collaborator, Ruth Potter, graduated from the Royal Academy of Music, London, and is solo harpist in the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra.
