NORDIC CHRISTMAS – WEDNESDAY 14 DECEMBER AT 8 P.M. AT THE DANISH INSTITUTE

This year, the four Nordic Institutes in Athens (Danish , Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish) are delighted to invite you to a Nordic Christmas concert and reception, where you will have the chance to taste Nordic Christmas specialties while being entertained by the Danish – Norwegian – Swedish jazz band Magnus Hjorth Trio with the singer, saxophone player and entertainer extraordinaire Mads Mathias performing Christmas evergreens such as White Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.

About the band:

Magnus Hjorth Trio released the critically acclaimed album “Old New Borrowed Blue” in the fall of 2009. As the title implies, the music on the CD deals with older jazz virtues combined with new inputs, borrow things here and there, and finally adding the lowest common denominator and the most important feature in jazz, namely; THE BLUES

Mads Mathias has, in spite of his tender age, already made a name for himself on the international jazz scene as a very charismatic crooner, a great saxophone player, and as the front man in the Danish neo-traditional jazz orchestra Six City Stompers.
