Wild Bluegrass at the festival


They have lived their lives on famous stages and in the orchestra-pits of New York’s Broadway. Now they will bring their high-energy bluegrass to Finnmark. Get ready for the “NyCity Slickers”. “We are thrilled to move from one continent to another to participate in this Norwegian-American cultural exchange”, says Faser Hardin, the band-leader of “NyCity Slickers”. He speaks with an enthusiasm that is characteristic of Americans, as well as people from Finnmark. When Faser Hardin met the director Knut Erik Jensen in the Manhattan neighborhood “Hell’s Kitchen” two years ago, they quickly hit it on, and later an unusually strong connection has manifest itself between Nordkapp and New York.
