Haggren Gravlund (SWE) // Tonfink, Lübeck - Tonfink - Kulturcafé & Bar - Lübeck

Gustav Haggren begeisterte bereits mit "Gustav & the seasick saylors" und "Case Conrad" seine Fans und Zuschauer. Er tourte in Europa und den USA und verfügt über eine einzigartige Bühnenpräsenz und warmherzige Stimme. Nun kommt er im Duett mit dem Sänger der schwedischen Band "Shooting John" auf Tournee, um ihr neues Projekt, schlicht betitelt "HG" und ihre neuen Songs vorzustellen. Die Musik besticht durch das Gefühl für die Melodie und den Song und wird durchdringt von einer tiefen Sensibilität, und erreicht eine hohe Eigenständigkeit mit viel Wiedererkennungswert. Sie erinnert in ihrer Dichte an Velvet Underground oder Lou Reed und John Cale, als sie gemeinsam "Songs for Drella" schrieben. ----Yeats comes to life with contemporary folk from SwedenTwo Swedish musicians and one Irish poet. Gustav Sigala Haggren and Peder Gravlund have put music to 14 of William Butler Yeats’ poems. It took them 17 years. The result is “Horseman, Pass By”, a double album recorded and produced in Malmö, Sweden. The album will come out on Stargazer Records, November 23rd.Introduction“Horseman, Pass By” is the collaborative project of Swedish singer/songwriters Gustav Sigala Haggren and Peder Gravlund. The songs are rooted in traditional folk music and contemporary pop, gently bridging the gap between Yeats’ time and our own, giving the poems a somewhat timeless character. The idea was sparked during a longer stay in Dublin in the early 2000’s, and has then slowly materialized over the years.
