Celtic Community Night with Scandinavian Folk Fusion featuring Varelse
Scandinavian Folk Fusion featuring Varelse

Varelse is a unique combination of various traditions, instruments, and histories. Nyckelharpa, fiddle, 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.

For several years after returning home from studying Scandinavian folk music in Sweden, Amy Hakanson searched for fellow musicians interested in exploring modern and traditional Scandinavian folk. She finally found them in Collin Stackhouse (fiddle), Joe Pomianek (guitar/mandolin), and Steven Skolnik (world percussion). Their debut album, Creature Comforts, is the result of their efforts to push themselves musically, to create collaboratively, and to experiment with instrumental folk music while maintaining a connection to tradition. All the band members come from different musical backgrounds, with just enough overlap that they can build off of each others experiences and form their own musical language.
