‘North Sea Siren’ to play Concerts in the Woods

COYLE — Sofia Talvik, the Swedish “North Sea Siren” of Folk-Americana music, will play a matinee show at Concerts in the Woods in Coyle at 3 p.m. Sunday.

The concert will be at the Laurel B. Johnson Community Center at 923 Hazel Point Road in Coyle.

Admission is by donation only; the suggested donation is $20.

Talvik’s music has always had a special tint of her Scandinavian heritage but her long 16-month, 37-state tour, through the United States in a RV has moved her music closer to the Americana tradition, organizers said.

Living like a musical nomad, moving from place to place, slowly but steadily building her audience through heartfelt and personal performances, she got to experience the USA in a way few people do, she said, adding that the people she met opened their homes and hearts to her and some of them even made it into her songs.

Talvik’s debut album “Blue Moon” was released in 2005, followed by “Street of Dreams,” which featured a duet with indie pop icon Bernard Butler from British band Suede.

Talvik released her album “Jonestown,” named after the tragic 1978 event in Jonestown, Guyana, 2008, and was the first Swedish female artist to play the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago that same year.

A veteran performer with nine full-length albums, including the brand-new “Center of the Universe”, as well as numerous EP’s and singles in her discography, Talvik’s U.S. tour wraps up in Arizona on Oct. 15.
