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.
It’s been such and adventure being on the Drivin’ & Dreaming tour. We’ve been to 37 states, played over 250 shows and have met so many wonderful people. But it’s time for Europe to get some Sofia Talvik too and this spring the Drivin’ & Dreaming tour will be moving across the pond to the old country.
I have one more Florida show before we leave so don’t miss out on getting tickets, as seating is limited. It will be a night of music and stories from the road at the Civic Media Center in Gainesville, presented by Shake Rag Cultural Center, on March 1st 8pm. Tickets are only $10 and you can get yours HERE! I’ll see you there!
My Drivin’ & Dreaming tour is nearing its end but President Obama wouldn’t have it that I didn’t have any more shows in Washington, DC 😉 so I had to schedule a show at the House of Sweden on February 24th (I didn’t want to be responsible for the US invading Sweden after all). So if you’re up around DC you better get your tickets to my show NOW! See you on the 24th! The show is at 6pm and you can find the address here!
I’m touring my way back to FL in January and February and these are my upcoming gigs along the way. I hope to see you at these, my last concerts on my Drivin’ & Dreaming tour, who knows when I’ll be back in the US again. Check out my gig page for more info about tickets and addresses. Note that you might have to get tickets or sign up/make reservations for a few of the gigs.

2012 has been an amazing year. My tour has taken me to 35 states and I’ve done over 200 shows. I’ve met wonderful people and made new friends all over the US. In January and February I’m wrapping up my Drivin’ & Dreaming Tour here in the US before moving it to Europe. I’m touring my way back to Florida where it all started over a year ago and by that I’m completing the circle around the US. You have all been such a big support this year, helping me through flat tires and new releases. I have a bunch of shows booked in the Southern States in January and February and I hope to see both new as well as familiar faces on the shows. Here’s a list of my upcoming shows, more dates to come, see all details on my GIG page. Happy New 2013!
