North Sea Concert & Storm Weather Shanty Choir
28 August 2021 20:00–22:30
Saturday's party concert with the traditional North Sea concert where the main theme is the relationship in the music around the North Sea.
This year we are running two concerts in one, so this will be a real party night. In the first part you get the traditional North Sea concert where musician Vegar Vårdal and artistic director of the festival Knut Egil Kristiansen directs and produces a unique concert, every year. Participating musicians are currently Vegar Vårdal, Birger Mistereggen and Storm Weather Shanty Choir. More artists may appear!
In the second part, after a break, we drop to the Storm Weather Shanty Choir. During this concert, we expect the roof in Eilert Sundthallen to lighten.
Storm Weather Shanty Choir is a six-man rock chantikor from Stord. Shanties are work songs that were used at sea, and in the Storm Weather Shanty Choir interpretation, the shanties are performed in a rock´n roll costume where the audience gets involved and sings with full throat - that is, about rocka all-singing! With just as strong energy, they take the audience all the way down when they perform beautiful and melancholy sailor songs about longing and lost love at sea.
