Specially for Cross-linx, Norwegian Ane Brun – with her already rather ‘intangible’ music style, traversing between classical and folk – is seeking the boundless collaboration of string quartet Zapp4. Brun has travelled a long road, from being a street musician to the famous singer-songwriter she is today. The mysterious, unfathomable Scandinavian sound also applies to Ane Brun – with the kind of darkness that reminds of the long, Norwegian winters. For Cross-linx, Zapp4 will be performing unique arrangements of Brun’s songs. The Dutch quartet is famous for its renditions, for example of pieces by Radiohead and Nirvana, proving that a new arrangement can truly be new. In short, a collaboration to look forward to! Famous Danish band Efterklang, American My Brightest Diamond and singer-songwriter DM Stith are the confirmed first main acts at Cross-linx 2017, which will be held from 2 to 5 March. Efterklang will perform together with The Happy Hopeless Orchestra and will also perform the opera Leaves. In addition to performing with her band, My-Brightest-Diamond singer Shara Worden will also play a leading role in the Unremembered song cycle, together with DM Stith and Padma Newsome, among others. Dutch band VanDryver and South African bass player James Oesi have also confirmed their performance at Cross-linx, which will be held in Eindhoven, Groningen, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
