Swedish Folk Group Jaerv
7 PM
The award-winning Swedish quintet, Jaerv (pronounced “Yairv”), is coming to the Recital Hall at Covenant Fine Arts Center at Calvin University (3201 Burton St. SE) to put on a rollicking, fun and heartfelt folk music concert. The five members have created a homogenous, vivid sound which has established Jaerv on the folk music scene as well as in many other forums. Rooted in several different musical traditions with influences from both jazz and pop music, Jaerv offers a lively stage performance where vocal, five-voiced tunes blend in with energetic dances and free improvisations. Jaerv is an internationally well-known act and has toured the U.S., Japan, Spain, Scotland, Ireland, Finland and Norway as well as other countries.
Tickets are $18 (students $15) and are available from Calvin University.
