DuEt in Danish – Carsten Islington, om at rejse og sanse, om at være fattig i et fremmed land, om trolde og børn

Carsten Islington er en af de rigtigt garvede fortællere. Svend-Erik og Carsten har arbejdet sammen på kryds og tværs i fortællingens univers. Carsten slutter DuEtten af med at sige: “Ja, jeg kan ikke ryste dig af, du kommer igen hele tiden i mit liv.” Det glæder mig uendeligt meget, at han siger det med etContinue reading “DuEt in Danish – Carsten Islington, om at rejse og sanse, om at være fattig i et fremmed land, om trolde og børn”

DuEt in Danish: Pernille Stockfleth, Geishas and Dragør, South Bridge and Bell’s Wynd.

Pernille Stockfleth er fuld af fart og liv. Det er altid en fornøjelse at være i Pernille’s selskab og sådan var det også på denne skønne majdag. Vi udvekslede historier på livet løs. Først fortalte Pernille en af hendes egene historier om en japansk geisha. Det fik Svend-Erik på banen med en lokal historie (Edinburgh,Continue reading “DuEt in Danish: Pernille Stockfleth, Geishas and Dragør, South Bridge and Bell’s Wynd.”

DuEt in Danish: Kasper Schulz – en Schulz historie, lidt erindringer og en sav

Jeg mødte Kasper på Kulcaféen i København engang i halvfemserne, hvor han arrangerede fortælleaftner. Han var en vild fætter, altid fuld af uforudsigelige og vidunderligt fabulerende indfald. Senere dukkede han op under bøgetræets krone i København og spillede på sine trommer. Det er der billeder af – Historier under Bøgen. I dag var ingen undtagelseContinue reading “DuEt in Danish: Kasper Schulz – en Schulz historie, lidt erindringer og en sav”

DuEt: Neil Sutcliffe – folktales, one of Svend’s own stories and some songs from Scotland

I met Neil Sutcliffe in the summer 2017 on the island Lismore, when we both were performing at Taproot Festival. I saw this talented young accordion player and was truly fascinated. When Alice Fernbank and me needed a musician, Neil just stepped up and played in our two hour long storytelling performance. We went onContinue reading “DuEt: Neil Sutcliffe – folktales, one of Svend’s own stories and some songs from Scotland”
