Music in the Gallery: Swedish-American Duo & Afternoon Tea
American cellist Mckinley James and Swedish accordionist and singer Sunniva Brynnel have teamed up to form a new duo of unexpected sonic combinations, propelled by traditional tunes! Sunniva is a seventh generation musician from the Swedish West Coast, Mckinley is a Vermonter deeply immersed in the folk music tradition of New England.
Having toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Sweden with acclaimed American/Swedish group Night Tree, the duo knows each others playing intimately, having sat side by side for some 150 concerts. Recently featured on Swedish radio, they are continuing to enjoy their collaboration as a duo.
The one-hour concert will be followed by a Swedish "Fika" afternoon tea reception--in honor of Swedish artist-weaver Ulrika Leander, internationally renowned for her contemporary tapestries and many years of curating exhibits of Swedish artists. The concert will offer an opportunity to view Ulrika's extraordinary tapestries in the gallery.
