Music Network’s Autumn season concludes with two very special concerts that showcase the otherworldly sounds of vocal ensemble Trio Mediæval and trumpeter Arve Henriksen in Dublin and Wexford on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November.

With a repertoire spanning church chants, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish hymns, as well as folk songs, Trio Mediæval have collaborated with some of Norway’s leading contemporary jazz musicians, many of them ECM label mates, including saxophonist Trygve Seim, pianist Tord Gustavsen and accordionist Frode Haltli.

Henriksen first emerged as a member of Food, a quartet featuring saxophonist Iain Ballamy, drummer Thomas Stronen and bassist Mats Eilertsen. In addition to a successful solo career, he is also a member of the innovative Supersilent group alongside Storlokken and guitarist/electronic artist Helge Sten.
