Jam Link International and Line Hassall Thomsen will be hosting the 2016 One Love Poetry Festival at Atlas, in Aarhus, Denmark on Thursday, April 7th. This is a unique spoken word event that will be a collaboration of poetry and acoustic style music. The theme for the evening will be ‘union in diversity and balance & harmony.’
The April Rainers, an exciting new Aarhus based band, with bassist John Hassall at the helm, will be one of the main musical acts. Having just returned from a successful concert in London and with a new album due out shortly, this will be their first Danish concert this year. The other musical performer for the night will be Lucas King, a 34 year-old Danish/Vietnamese national versed in organic pop, folk and roots. He possesses strong vocals and his artistic style is often compared to that of James Taylor. Lucas King released his debut album, “long road again,” in early 2015 and is fresh from a tour in Asia.
Confirmed poets for the 2016 One Love Poetry Festival are: Camilla Sydel, Mads Mygind, Line Hassall Thomsen, Judy Wanderi, Henrik Giversen, Black Gold, Matt Charnock and Olaf Zhiga. The organizers have recently announced that a few more names will be added to the lineup.
