Hoven Droven

Music
Friday, September 14
6:45 pm
Cost: Free
Traditional Swedish folk songs reworked in the vein of American hard rock.

With their trademark blend of Swedish folk music and American hard rock, Hoven Droven have proven themselves to be one of the most singular bands in world-folk music. Along with the usual suspects encountered in any run of the mill rock band—guitar, bass and drums—Hoven Droven wield fiddles, saxophones, clarinets, along with a host of other less-than-standard instruments that provide the vital folk element to the group’s sound. Though perhaps jarring on paper, the effect onstage comes off as purely logical and utterly thrilling.

More information can be found on their website.
