New Viking music from the band Krauka

Krauka last performed in NY Mills in 2009.

The Band Krauka, from Iceland and Denmark, will perform ancient music of the Vikings at New York Mills on Friday, September 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the Regional Cultural Center.

Admission is $12 advance sale and $15 the evening of the concert. A pre-concert Viking dinner at 5:30 p.m. will be at the Eagles Cafe in NY Mills across the street from the Regional Cultural Center.

Call 218-385-3339 for tickets. Reservations for the dinner are recommended.

Krauka, a 4-person band, plays the ancient music of the Vikings with ancient instruments and some modern ones too (e.g., an electric guitar.)

Krauka performed in NY Mills last year to the enjoyment of a large crowd of enchanted listeners.

Once again Krauka comes rushing through the time machine with its fourth compact disc release "Odinn." It is brimming over with legends and myths about elves, dwarfs, tricksters and gods. It is easy to hear that it isn't the first time Krauka is in the field and this time with one more musician playing a bass, which colors the music with a rough sound.

For those who know Krauka, Odinn is a straightforward continuation of the previous CDs Vikinga Seidur, Stiklur and Bylur - for those who aren't acquainted with these modern Vikings it is about time to listen to their imaginative compositions and lively music on re-created instrument from the Viking-Age and modern instruments. Join them on their travel to the world of fairytales - a world in some ways similar to the world we are living in today.

This will be a truly enchanting concert.
