Meet the board behind Mads Hansen's Kapel

Mads Hansens 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 their formation in 2015, Mads Hansens Kapel has played a variety of different concerts in Denmark, Sweden, England, Germany, Estonia, and Finland. Small intimate and moving concerts, traditional danish ballroom dances, and crazy street parties are all on the repetoire of Mads Hansens Kapel.

Their sound is driven by energy, cheek and a well-developed humorous fingerspitzengefühl. When all of that is said, Mads Hansens Kapel is something you need to experience to fully understand.


Clarinet and foot stomp

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.



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 last but not least an impressive mustache. He is both the Wilhelm Tell and the D’Artagnan of folk music.



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 goes 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.


Guitar and harmonica

Sebastian Boesgaard Bloch Larsen has in his musical arsenal a sports bag full of cool licks, and 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.



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.
