„Vaer velkommen“ is the motto of Helene Blum’s & Harald Haugaard’s Nordic Christmas Tour in its 11th year. From 7th to 17th December 2017 the sextet will tour through Denmark and Germany. Of course, they will bring their Christmas CD “Julerosen” with them. As always they come in the company of highly acclaimed guests: Christoffer Moller from Denmark on the grand piano, Josefina Paulsson from Sweden with her Nyckelharpa, Kristoffer Kleiveland from Norway on the accordion, and Mathaeus Bech from Denmark on the double bass.
A few tickets are still available. Find more information here. For now, we at Laviola say “Vaer velkommen” – welcome – to you all and wish you a very happy Christmas!

The year is coming to an end and we're already looking forward to the next since 2018 will be celebrating the European cultural heritage. As sharing-heritage-embassadors Helene Blum and Harald Haugaard founded the SHARING HERITAGE Love Tree Ensemble. The ensemble unites different traditions and direction of a European vision which celebrates both differences and similarities equally. The Scottish "jig" transforms into children's song in Denmark and into a tarantella in Italy. "Love Tree", a song which contributed it's name to the ensemble, is known a simple love song in many regions – just under different names. The SHARING HERITAGE Love Tree Ensemble rediscovers forgotten treasures and arranges and interprets them in a contemporary way. The artists passionately cross musical and national borders and are known as the best amongst their genres.
In addition to it's official engagements the ensemble will be available exclusively for festivals.

25/07/2017 Dreamers' Circus
Denmark is at the centre of attention at this year's Usedom Music Festival, its 24th edition. And of course we will be there, too. The festival starts with the spectacular choir and instrumental music by the Danish String Quartet with Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen on the violin, accompanied by the Choir of North German Radio. Sørensen will also join Dreamers' Circus on Sept 24 in the Protestant church at Liepe which is in fact the oldest church documented on the island of Usedom. Its time-worn spirit will be an inspiring contrast to the energy-driven music by the artists. Once again we look forward to being a part of this fantastic festival.
