Varelse

  • Scanfair 2018 - Portland’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum Exhibit Hall 300 North Winning Way Portland, OR, 97227 United States (map)

Amy’s new band Varelse will be playing a set at Scanfair, Portland’s annual Nordic Christmas Celebration and Market.

Varelse is a unique combination of various traditions, instruments, and histories. Nyckelharpa, fiddle, six-string guitar and various hand percussion instruments come together to create a groove and sound that is simultaneously old and new. Weaving together Scandinavian folk tradition, North American fiddle tunes, and Western European melodies, along with African and Middle Eastern rhythmic traditions, Varelse is pushing the boundaries of folk fusion.
