Darling West is a Norwegian Folk/Americana (or Nordicana, if you like) duo. They’ve released three albums, won the Spellemann (Norwegian Grammy Award) and have spent the last few years travelling all over the world playing their music.

This is their third German tour, and with lush harmony singing, melodic guitars and playful banjo, they tell their stories through songs they travelled to the mountains to write.

“Americana may be rooted in simple American roots music — country, folk, blues, rock — but its future may well be driven by the way the style reverberates beyond America. On While I Was Asleep, Darling West injects its chosen genre with an ethereal quality well suited to its native Norway, where musicians come by a sense of majesty honestly.”
-NPR

“They are a perfect example of how Americana has infected the rest of the world, and they play it with great affection.”
-No Depression
