From Brazil, Badi Assad is rooted in the bossa genre but also wanders into jazzy tunes and singer/songwriter pop. Her talent in guitar playing won her a prize for "Best acoustic finger style guitarist" in 1995. A nice, tranquil start to a night in the city.
It has been two years since we last heard new music from Magnus Tingsek. Too Many Feelings At The Same Time is the new album. Two years in the making, it proves that the Swede from Malmö has created his very own musical signature.

Make sure to get on the bus from Pustervik on time and buy tickets in advance.
Live acts: The Sadies and Kristoffer Åström + secret guests
