Sweden and Denmark’s Åkervinda perform their unique, modern Scandinavian folksongs. Jazz singers at heart, and influenced by artists such as Bjork and The Real Group, they share a deep love of folk music. Through improvisation, they breathe new life into traditional songs, singing stories of women through the ages.

Their appearance at Marchland marks the opening of a UK tour and the release of their latest album. Have a listen to this impromptu moment of Nordic vocal music, from Åkervinda. It might just tease out a few goosebumps - Tobias Elof, The Swingles.

Akervinda will also be joining on the final Saturday for our presentation of A Vanished Kingdom, giving us their perspective on women’s history and cross border co-operation.
