Modern Vikings

Lancaster Priory Duration: 90 minutes Get Tickets

Modern Vikings are a bit of a Young-Scottish-Jazz-Supergroup and we are particularly pleased to be hosting them in the amazing space at Lancaster Priory. As with their Scandinavian jazz cousins, Modern Vikings play music with a strong emphasis on melody with the added grooves, urgency and colours of the American jazz tradition. Their music reflects Henderson’s many influences and experiences from the beginning of his musical upbringing to present, creating a fresh sound that is unique, bold and emotive.

“I’m particularly inspired by jazz musicians who incorporate elements of their own countries’ folk music into their writings and playing. Modern Jazz artists such as Shai Maestro, Avishai Cohen, Lionel Loueke, Leo Blanco and John Scofield have been huge influences on my style more recently.”

This very special show will be the launch gig for their debut album ‘Tales of the Skald’, which takes the listener through an array of grooves, colours and styles all connected to the jazz tradition and beyond.
