Kongero (Swedish folk-appella)
The fabulous Swedish folk group Kongero are making a rare UK appearance at Colwall Village Hall 21st April, performing a benefit concert for Colwall Orchard Group.
Tim Dixon, concert organiser said “We were captivated by Kongero’s beautiful voices and jumped at the chance to welcome them back to Colwall. We have built up strong links with Scandinavian musicians over the last few years, and we can guarantee that this will be an extraordinary evening of flawless musicianship”.
With their voices moving together in tight harmony or intertwining in a whirling tempo, Kongero draws traditional Swedish music from out of the past and into the present. Their repertoire consists of traditional and self-penned songs and tunes arranged by the members. Kongero tells tales of life, with moving love songs, dramatic medieval ballads, witty ditties, and spirited dances. Their music is characterized by tight harmonies, inciting rhythms and the clarity of their beautiful voices.
The performance (with bar and flagpole!) is at Colwall Village Hall – Kongero are on stage at 8pm. Tickets £15 for adults, £10 for children.
