An ever-changing insight into the music of the English 17th Century tavern, Bjarte Eike’s Alehouse Sessions weave a story of this tumultuous period through sea shanties, touching folk music, anecdotes, bawdy songs, humour and of course, beer.

They lived this music, sang it full-heartedly, danced it with true passion and put the audience in a state of euphoria.
