Geoff Berner - Norwegian Tour

GEOFF BERNER (Can) - Norway Tour


Click here for press release / presentation in Norwegian

Canadian singer/songwriter/accordionist
Geoff Berner, aka the "Whiskey Rabbi" is touring most of Norway in May. Perhaps best known in this country for his many support gigs with Kaizers Orchestra, including the one last year at Oslo Spektrum Arena in front of 9000 people, Berner plays a strange kind of klezmer music, solo, with accordion. First brought to Norway years ago by Bergen favourites the Realones, he's built a strong cult following with his anarchic live performances.

His latest album "Victory Party" (Mint Records) recently won the "Pushing the Boundaries" category at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. "Pushing the Boundaries" is a pretty good description of what Berner does with Jewish traditional music.
