Wildie @ Strandkompaniet
10 Sep at 20:00 - PM22:30
We have the honor to present Wildie for an evening filled with their elegant vintage of American roots music. Wildie is clearly one of Österlen's musical secrets. This band has such a well-crafted solid cast sound that it sounds like they have been around for all time. Anders Thorén, singer in Wildie has the voice, one in a hundred. There is blues, there is soul and definitely country there, but also something else. Through travels around the world, thousands of hours of abrasion at the piano and live playing with guitar and accordion, Anders has acquired a uniquely powerful voice. Behind the power shines sentimentality and nostalgia. It's a distinct ID and if you listen closely you can hear echoes from Nashville, Memphis and Austin, from Havana's bars and the Marseille port district. Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, Rufus Wainwright and Johnny Cash are filtered through Blekinge's forests. ”
