$15 advance/$20 day-ofSince the group’s inception, Norwegian/Swedish folkrock band, SVER, has gone from strength to strength, playing extensively throughout Europe and the US, gaining a reputation as one of the most acclaimed live acts in the Nordic folk scene. SVER has released four albums: “Reverie” (2018), the long-awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed albums ”Fryd” (2015), “Fruen” (2010), and “SVER” (2007).
“SVER has an enviable reputation for being one of the best live bands on the circuit.” – Fiona Talkington, Songlines
“SVER mixes music from the depths of heritage with the freedoms of innovation. You’re unlikely to resist, so why try, just go with it.” – Tim Carroll, Folkwords
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.
Their newest album, Reverie, is recorded in Hallibakken Lydstudio, Norway, mixed/mastered by Mikael Lyander and Erik Ronström at Hedgehog Music, Sweden. The album is released November 30th on Folkhall Records!
“Among the other visiting acts, Norwegian/Swedish instrumental five-piece SVER caused perhaps the biggest buzz, matching exquisite virtuosity with exuberant playfulness and terrific rhythmic drive…” – Sue Wilson, The Scotsman
