Heilung bring “amplified history from early medieval northern Europe” to Olympia this weekend

Heilung, an experimental folk band made up of members from Denmark, Norway and Germany, will play at Montreal’s Olympia this weekend and their live show promises to be something truly unique.

Heilung’s influences come from texts and runic inscriptions from Germanic peoples of the Bronze Age, Iron Age and Viking Age.

The band describe their music as “amplified history from early medieval northern Europe” and the live show is as much a theatre piece or “living history” as concert — with everyone, including a quartet of extra musicians, decked out in the authentic regalia of their respective cultures (including antlers, human hair and bones).

HEILUNG means “healing” in the German language and this also describes the core of the band’s sound. The listener is supposed to be left at ease and in a relaxed state after a magical musical journey that is at times turbulent.

The Montreal date is one of the only shows not quite sold out so make sure you grab a ticket for this very special evening.
