“NORDIC COVERS” AN EVENING WITH KROY
In collaboration with the Phi Centre
8 p.m. – CENTRE PHI, 407 Rue Saint-Pierre, Montreal
In order to celebrate all Nordicities and underline Quebec’s belonging to this concept intimately linked to the Scandinavian and Nordic countries, the FIKA(S) Festival opens its third edition with a musical evening featuring special guest KROY, a.k.a. Camille Poliquin, member of the electro-pop duet Milk & Bone!
On the program is a two-part evening where KROY will perform unusual and unique replays of Scandinavian artists followed by a concert of his own compositions.
“[KROY] Worth listening to if you like Scandinavian pop, the color black and Lykke Li’s heartfelt music.”
