Greenlandic indie pop singer Nive Nielsen plays a little red ukulele in a band called the Deer Children with her best friend, multi-instrumentalist Cowboy Jan. Nive writes songs about love and reindeer and kicking life in the nuts. She won an IMA independent music award in the US, got the much coveted Danish Crown Prince’s Couple’s Stardust Award, was nominated for the Scandinavian Grammies, worked with Tchad Blake, Howe Gelb & John Parish and friends from such indie royalty outfits as The Black Keys and Wolf Parade.

A Genre of itself, the two impressive line-ups make for an unforgettable must-see performance!
