The Dance is open!

 The Music

Young dance orchestra deeply rooted in the Danish instrumental tradition. Swinging, embracing and breathtaking are only a few of the colours on the pallet Mads Hansen Chapel paints with. But MHK also has a soft side. Check out the two videos below to get a better picture of who the MHK is and what they can do.

Potpourri


A set of three traditional danish dancing tunes – A polka, a waltz and a hopsa – unconventionally squashed together. Have Fun!

Jyllands Land


Jyllands Land is a traditional folk piece from a small island in the westernmost part of Denmark. Here, the old traditions of dance and music are alive and prosperous. This is our interpretation of the so called “Sønderhoning”

The Band

Mads Hansen Kapel is a young and creative wind blowing over the danish music scene. The band members have roots in widely different genres, but found a common love for the danish traditional music and the renewal of it.

Since its formation in 2015, MHK has played a variety of different concerts in Denmark, Sweden, England, Estonia and Finland. Small intimate and moving concerts, traditional danish ballroom dances and crazy street partys are all on the repertoire of MHK. Their sound is driven by energy, cheek and a well-developed humorous fingerspitzgefühl. When all of that is said, MHK is something you need to experience to fully understand. 

Lorenzen · Clarinet


Martin Strange Lorenzen is in the inner folk circles considered to be a genuine air bender, and not for no reason. He is the tamer of wild sounds and words, the Captain of Clarinets, and through and through an entirely down-to-earth-kind-of-guy. Just remember, when listening to the mystery that is Lorenzen: the answer is blowing in the wind.

Clausen · Violin


Jonas Lærke Clausen masters the bow and violin, as Wilhelm Tell mastered bow and arrow. In addition, Clausen is armed to the teeth with sharp tunes, blazing solos and and last but not least an impressive mustache. He is both the Wilhelm Tell and the D’Artagnan of folk music.

Nielsen · Bas


Emil Ringtved Nielsen is the bass player, and you could travel the seven seas for a lifetime without ever finding his like. When the waves go high, Nielsen takes control over ship and crew. No wind topples him, no wave scares him, and no storm makes him forget who he is. He is the bass player, and he has a job to do.

Larsen · Guitar


Sebastian Boesgaard Bloch Larsen has in his musical arsenal a sports bag full of cool licks, an unwavering sense of time and an unimaginable amount of charm. Beware girls, if you are not spellbound by his shiny guitar, you will be by his brown curls and deep eyes.

Jørgensen · Piano


Julian Svejgaard Jørgensen, like most other pianists, has 10 fingers, but when he plays, one can easily question that fact. He can play lightning fast if he chooses, but just keep calm. Jørgensen takes the listener – as well as his soloists and accompanists – by the hand so nobody is left behind.
