Dreamers' Circus is a Danish folk group formed in 2009. Ale and Rune met by chance during a folk festival in Copenhagen, while standing in the corner of a pub jamming some folk tunes. Nikolaj just came in, sat at the piano and began to play along.
Dreamers' Circus have grown up with Danish and Scandinavian traditional music.
Dreamers' Circus – Casper (Ale Carr)
Musicians: Cittern: Ale Carr, Accordion/Synthesizers: Nikolaj Busk, Violin: Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen
Appears on: DALI CD Vol. 5
"All three members of Dreamers' Circus have grown up with Danish and Scandinavian traditional music, which still serves as an inspiration and jumping-off point for us as we create our own compositions today.
While we enjoy playing older folk tunes handed down over the generations, we more and more look to write our own music, drawing from a wide range of influences and traditions."
For this DALI project, we wanted to contribute a new tune that we hope conveys happiness, dynamism and a freedom of spirit that seems to be a particular preserve of young people. This tune is named for and dedicated to Ale's son, Casper.
