Abbey Arts presents: Väsen, The Go Janes live at Ballard Homestead
About this Event


"Väsen-Duo, Mikael Marin and Olov Johansson have, after 37 years of interaction and touring, refined their sound and their stage presence to the extent that today they are unique in their kind. With their playful and perfect interplay, they seem to defy the laws of physics in what appears to be a telepathic communication.

The music is intense and full of humour. They create their very own musical language which in its appeal is as modern as it is ancient. With the foundation firmly rooted in the traditional music of Uppland, they have always looked curiously at new musical goals."

-Artist Bio


"The Go Janes feature ukulele, guitar, and generous doses of delicious harmony vocals.

We have decades of experience as creative artists, community organizers, educators and inquisitive consumers of life. Arni and Patrice are members of the satirical trio Uncle Bonsai; Kathleen Tracy is an accomplished solo artist and community chorus director. Patrice has produced the Wintergrass Festival almost from its inception. Arni and Patrice are also visual artists. and Arni and Kathleen are both sought after educators and coaches working with children, adults and the differently-abled.

We’ve performed at the Seattle Folklore Society, Dusty Strings (with Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer), Traditions Cafe in Olympia, Black Dog Arts Cafe in Snoqualmie, Seattle Folklife Festival, the Moisture Festival, the Lavender Festival, Kenyon Hall and many other venues."
