Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music.
I hardly can’t believe it’s true, but I have a bunch of tour dates coming up in July in Germany. Catch me live here (please contact the venues to reserve tickets and learn about their safety regulations and restrictions):
JULY 08 Homeyers Hof Garbsen, Germany
JULY 09 Kreml-Kulturhaus Hahnstätten, Germany
JULY 10 Kraftwerk Haag Rotenburg an der Fulda, Germany
For SVT Midsommar – the televised midsummer concert, I teamed up with Swedish folk-rocker Stiko Per Larsson for a duet on my song Take me Home. It’s now available as a single and you can find it on all platforms, and as a download here:
I’m very excited to announce that I will be one of 4 Swedish artists to celebrate Midsummer in a big televised concert for everyone in Sweden, and anyone abroad who wants to join. SVT has a tradition to air a magical midsummer concert every year, and this year they asked me to do the honor of playing. It will be a mix of new and traditional tunes and I am humbled to share the stage with Stiko Per Larsson, Bouchra Iramdane, Henning och Sunniva Brynnel, set in the lush surroundings of the Swedish castle of Nääs on the west coast of Sweden.
Last year House of Sweden (The Swedish Embassy in DC) along with numerous Swedish consulates in the US, hosted me for a special online midsummer concert. Just like then, you will be able to watch the SVT Midsommar concert from anywhere in the world on this link:
Real live shows are coming up, but travel is still not on the table for everyone. So that is why I will be airing a special online midsummer concert for everyone who still feel more comfortable listening to music at home. I will be treating you to a mix of my own originals and some summery Swedish folk songs, in the picturesque setting of Sweden’s west coast. With me for this concert I have Sweden’s best guitar player, Marcus Högquist. You have probably already heard him on all my albums 🙂
Tune in on midsummer’s day, June 26th at 9pm European time, 3pm EST. We are as always grateful for your donations for the music. We always go the extra mile to deliver flawless sound and a nice setting for the concerts.

Concert starts at 21:00 European time (7pm UTC) SE/DE: 21 EST 3pm CST 2pm MST 1pm PST noon
It feels almost unreal to be able to announce real live concert dates. Do I remember how to play the guitar? Can I still sing? I guess we’ll see, because I have a bunch of summer dates coming up in Germany and guess what – they are in front of a live audience!!
Luckily I have received my Covid vaccine so I can feel confident I will survive meeting people in real life again. Though we will of course keep practicing face mask and hand sanitizer just in case you have any other strange germs 😉
If you happen to find yourself in Germany in June and July you can come and see a concert here:
