Three become one in the Swedish folk band Väsen, an acoustic trio now in its 27th year of touring. The veteran group, made up of Roger Tallroth on 12-string guitar, violist Mikael Marin and Olov Johansson, a prominent nyckelharpa (a “keyed fiddle”) player, is deeply rooted in the aged traditions of the Swedish countryside. Through energetic arrangements, Väsen weaves inspired improvisations and modern innovation into a musical tapestry of both old and new.

Saturday, September 23. $22-24, 7pm. C’ville Coffee, 1301 Harris St. 817-2633.
