Epic Little Folk Fest- Moira Smiley + SVER
Friday Sept. 20, 2019
Tourterelle Restaurant & Inn
Doors Open 6:30pm, Show 7:30pm

Epic Little Folk Fest is a one-night-only opportunity to dance & swoon your evening away to the music of Moira Smiley & epic nordic folk group, SVER in the Tourterelle barn. Fill your bellies at the food truck, and wear your dancing shoes!

This international partnership takes new & traditional fiddle-driven tunes from Scandinavia and melds them with wild, lonesome, and original songs. Smileys plaintive, powerful voice weaves between the fiery, inventive forces of SVERs fiddles, accordion, guitar and drums.

Start the evening with performances by Nate Gusakov & musicians from Young Tradition Vermont, and let Moira Smiley + SVER sing you home!

"Moira Smiley is a brilliant musician  an innovative composer and arranger, and a heartbreakingly beautiful singer.  Her music transcends (and expands) boundaries." - Billy Childs, multi-grammy-winning composer/pianist

Moira Smiley is a Singer / Composer.  Her remarkable career has produced award-winning ensembles, and recordings of experimental, emotional music.  Always improvisational in her approach, Moira marries her study of traditional folk-song with an avant-garde sensibility. She accompanies herself on banjo, accordion, piano and percussive movement while performing solo, or with her vocal group, VOCO.  Moira Smiley has also toured in tUnE-yArDs, Irish super-group, Solas, the pioneering Jayme Stones Lomax Project, multi-grammy winner, Billy Childs Laura Nyro Re-Imagined and with Paul Hillier, KITKA, on BBC TV and Radio, npr, PBS.  She is well-known and beloved around the world as a choral composer and arranger  with millions of singers world-wide singing her music, and a Carnegie Hall concert featuring her music coming in 2020. In 2018 she released her latest solo album and choral songbook, Unzip The Horizon.

"SVER has an enviable reputation for being one of the best live bands on the circuit." - Fiona Talkington, Songlines

SVER has often been described as sounding electric without electricity, and their flexible musicianship has also made them an attractive backing band for some of Scandinavia's leading singers in different genres. That has lead to them playing on TV-shows, at large festivals, as well as securing positions on radio charts with the music ranging from folk to reggae/dancehall and rap. Their imaginative soundscapes, grooves, and melodies will take you on a journey over the Norwegian fjords and mountains, into the lively pubs and back out into the deep forest of their musicality.
