Harv
February 15, 2006
Chicago Cultural Center, 77 East Randolph Street
, Illinois
Genre: European

On Wednesday, February 15 at 7 pm, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs presents Harv, a young, folk-based group from Sweden.  The concert, which takes place in the Claudia Cassidy Theater of the Chicago Cultural Center, 77 East Randolph Street, features contemporary variations on long standing folk fiddle duet traditions.  Admission is free, but seats are limited.

Their name Harv means "harrow," a farm instrument used to level land.  In Swedish "harv" also has the connotation of a really intense experience, which is the definition that aptly describes Harv's approach.  Harv was founded 1996 by Daniel Sandén Warg (violin) and Magnus Stinnerbom (viola, accordion).  In the early days, the band was a duo with various guest musicians, but now Harv is a quartet with Christian Svensson (percussion) and David Tallroth (guitar) as permanent members.  2005 was a creative year for the band, with the release of both the Direktör Deg ep and Polka Raggioso album.  The band plays a central role in the theatrical collaboration of Norwegian Rikskonserterne and the Swedish riksteatern and västanåteatern, by arranging all music and touring with them in Norway in the fall of 2005. 

They are frequently playing live and have been touring all over Europe and the States, and have also been playing in Guatemala on their everlasting musical quest.  Harv’s great experience and joy in playing live has helped the band develop a sound and style that is unique and are making them as pioneers of Swedish folk music today.  Harv was recently nominated for the Swedish Manifest Award for Best Folk/World Music Album of 2005 for Polka Raggioso.
