I’ve always loved nature, and especially forests. When I’m in the woods I get struck with the timelessness of it all. How these living things have been there since way before I was born and, if humanity doesn’t mess it up, will be there long after I am gone. It makes me feel insignificant in the best possible way and reminds me that we are all here for a very limited time and to enjoy the ride. I got to take a much needed break in nature to recharge over New Years and sincerely hope you found time and space to recharge as well!
There are quite a few exciting things coming up in January, but first off I want to convey my most heartfelt gratitude to those who made it out the the Rockwood Music Hall Lucia Celebration! It was such a blast. The show was recorded and I will be releasing it as a live record in the near future. Please keep an eye on my social media pages for that!
January 13th, 7.30 pm @ Bowery Electric, Map Room: The Elsa Nilsson Quartet will be playing our arrangements of Swedish traditionals and original jazz. It’s a free show so stop by and have a drink with us!
January 15th, 9 pm @ Nublu: I will be performing as part of a collective project that I am very excited about with Marcos Varela on bass and Cody Rahn on drums. We will be featuring very special guest all the way from Denmark; guitarist Morten Haugshøj.
Then I am off to Los Angeles for a few days to showcase the wonderful Trevor James Flutes at the world’s largest musical instrument trade show, NAMM and go hiking (nature recharge day!).
January 29th, 10 pm @ Nublu: The Elsa Nilsson Quartet will be playing at Nublu. We love this spot- please come join us!
I hope to see you at one or all of these shows! Whoever makes it out to at least 3 gets a free CD!
