Duo Askou//Andersen

This year’s St. Hans Eve celebration at the Johannes Larsen Museum will be graced by Duo Askou//Andersen, who will play in the museum garden. The duo consists of violinist Hanne Askou and accordionist Frode Andersen. They have 2 popular CD’s with their classical arrangements of Danish and Nordic songs, psalms and folk melodies. Their latest release, Winter’s Voice, came out in the fall of 2016 and was presented with a release concert at the Johannes Larsen Museum.
The duo’s trademark is their tight interaction, their warm tones and their virtuousity, which come into play in their broad repertoire of classical music, combined with evocative interpretations of Danish songs and Nordic folk music. On St. Hans Eve, the duo will play a short concert in the garden with summer songs, evening songs and folk melodies.


The arrangement will end at 8:00 PM.

There is free entrance to the garden starting at 5:00 PM.

Drinks can be purchased at the Coffee House at the Johannes Larsen Museum.
