Blaue Blume is a band with many labels and has been described as flamboyant, emotional and melodramatic. The four musicians made a strong and surprising debut in 2014 with the release of their album, ‘Beau & Lorette’, claiming their own space on the Danish rock scene.

With a twist of shoegaze, indie-rock, 80’s art pop and a powerful voice delivered by front singer Jonas Smith Blaue Blume is bringing a sound you don’t hear anywhere else.
The Zoological Museum’s collection of prehistoric animals will accompany Blaue Blume and the band will play between skeletons from a mammoth, a giant elk and aurochs.
Maggie Björklund has made a name for herself as an exceptional and stylistically unique musician, combining the tastes and techniques a wide variety of music: country, indie rock, film scores, psychedelia, pop – into a seamless blend of roots music.
Over the years she has landed coveted touring gigs with Jack White (and performed on his latest Lazaretto), X’s John Doe and Exene Cervenka and Howe Gelb.
In the fall of 2014 she released her second album, ‘Shaken’, where she invited an A-plus band, consisting of drummer Convertino, Barb Hunter on cello, Jim Barr (Portishead) on bass, John Parish (noted for his work as a singer/songwriter with PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) on guitars/electric bass and production, and a featured guest vocal appearance by Kurt Wagner (Lambchop).
Maggie Björklund will perform together with a cellist in a striped down concert at the Zoological Museum. The two melodic instruments against each other will show a more experimental, intense and slightly psychedelic version of her music and will stand out as a compliment to the museum’s exhibition and the clear February sky.
Light at the Museum is realized in collaboration with our partners: Københavns Kommune, Statens Kunstfond, Nordea-fonden, Wilhelm Hansen Fonden, Sennheiser and LiteCom. We are grateful for the support.
