PEOPLE at Backes spring 2023

The program for our concert series FOLK at Backes is starting to take shape. There will be some jazz, shows in addition to folk music. The concerts will be published gradually towards Christmas.

Through our concert series, FOLK på Backes, we want to give you good folk music experiences of the highest quality all year round. With Backes Bu as a permanent framework around the concerts, we hope to build an intimate and open arena in the middle of Farsund center and perhaps build a permanent folk music scene here in the long run.
