Dreamers' Circus 2022-2023 Season Highlights
 “They’re world class. Now the world needs to hear them.”
SingOut!

“Dreamers’ Circus does for Nordic folk music, what Astor Piazolla and the tango nuevo did for Argentinian folk music.”
Politiken (Denmark)

Dreamers' Circus is an ambitiously inventive acoustic band taking the new-Nordic music scene by storm, winners of five Danish Music Awards. Formed after a live jam session in Copenhagen more than ten years ago, this talented trio’s sound is based on virtuosic and incendiary musical ability across a range of instruments that includes violin, accordion, piano and cittern. Endlessly exploring new challenges for themselves and for audiences, Dreamers’ Circus mine their backgrounds in traditional and roots music to present a genre-bending amalgam of folk sensibility, jazz improvisation and classical complexity distilled through an openness to popular music influences. The result is music that is resolutely contemporary and rhythmically and melodically engrossing.

The trio's members are Danish violinist Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (who is also a member of the renowned Danish String Quartet), Danish pianist (and accordionist) Nikolaj Busk and Nordic cittern player Ale Carr (from Sweden). Dreamers’ Circus will embark on two US tours this season, one in Sept/Oct and the other in Feb/March 2023 (dates below).
