The 9th annual Nordic Christmas “Hjertets Lys” sets off Thursday 10th with a concert at Johannes Larsen Museet in Kerteminde. It will be followed up by nine concerts in Germany. The guests this year are the Helene Blum & Harald Haugaard Band together with three musicians from Odense Symfoniorkester. Together they form the Carl Nielsen Folk Band. The music and life of the Danish composer Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) is the red thread for this year’s Christmas tour but a Nordic Christmas music and songs and tunes from Blum’s and Haugaard’s regular repertoire is also on the set list.
