Dreamers’ Circus

Sunday, February 26, 2023 at 3 p.m.
Minsky Recital Hall

Late one night in 2009 Nikolaj Busk pushed open the door of a bar in Copenhagen and chanced upon fiddle player Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen and cittern player, Ale Carr, playing some traditional Nordic tunes. Spotting a piano in the corner of the room Nikolaj joined the pair. Within minutes it became clear that there was an instant musical chemistry happening. Since that first meeting Dreamers’ Circus has toured widely, performing not just in our native Scandinavia but also throughout Europe and in Japan, Australia and North America.

“World-class folk music,” “equilibristic euphony and acrobatics of the highest order,” and “probably one of the best albums to come out of Denmark for a long time” – just a sample of the praises critics have given the trio.
