Nature-loving Bowerbirds are part of the wildly diverse and bearded American free folk genre. The duo sings faithful harmonies about flora and fauna making it hard not to drift away in dreams of a clearing in the woods far from the path of others.
The sense of fresh air and organic farming float around these songs, which are typically accompanied by guitar, accordion, violins and just a touch of muffled drums.
Naive and old-fashioned? Maybe. But also containing a strong sense of translation of naturalistic poetry and idyllic, memorable tunes. Bowerbirds sing to the hippie child in all of us.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
