Happy New Year everyone! And thanks for reading this and taking an interest in Copenhagen Collaboration Looking back, 2012 was a special year for us. Exciting stuff happened for Copenhagen Collaboration with us being trusted, and allowed, to put on two crazy concerts at both Roskilde and SPOT festival – but a lot of interesting [...]
Roskilde Festival just announced on their live web cast, that Copenhagen Collaboration will be doing a show at the festival this summer. Are we excited? I believe we are. Details to come.
Some weeks ago the SPOT festival in Århus, Denmark, announced that this years version of the festival will see a very special and “unique” live performance from the Copenhagen Collaboration under the name "Copenhagen Collaboration reworked by T.

I choose to blog about our Finnish brethren roaming the musical wilderness further north and further east of wee Denmark. Finland is a Nordic country, but not part of Scandinavia. And for many Scandinavians, maybe especially the Danes, Finland means mystery.
Before the Show is making a new album these days, which has had me thinking about artists and their creative patterns when it comes to writing, recording or just plain jammin’.

It´s a great marriage, but a quite ordinary one compared to the exciting and never-dull threesome of Freddys violin, Lines cello and Torleiks double bass.
It has once been said that being in a band resembles being in a relationship with
another person.. I find that very true. In this case, being in a relationship with Gustav, Kristine, Sune, Anders
