When we ask our fans, “Which band would you like to see at Faerieworlds?” there is one name that is consistently at the top of the list. And now the time has come:
Faerieworlds is excited to announce that OMNIA will make their US premiere by playing twice in the Realm in Eugene, Oregon this summer. Omnia’s dynamic blend of folk-rock, Celtic, and World music powers their dramatic and theatric live show and we know they are looking forward to bringing all of their trademark energy and passion to the Faerieworlds Main Stage!
Omnia is the quintessential tribal band in their presence and their music: there are no electronic enhancements to their sound, just pure acoustic music on traditional instruments backed by a full electric rock band delivering driving rhythms and soaring melodies that will capture your feet and lift your heart.
“For the first time ever…OMNIA will be bringing the one and only, pure and uncut PaganFolk to the US! Old world Paganism meets the New world tribes! The Clans that were sundered by time, politics and emigration will be re-united for this one amazing, fantastical, artistic and magical Festival in Oregon! I get all goosebumpy thinking about it! Finally we get to play to an audience that speaks our language! FaerieWorlds here we come! Nature has provided us with a lot of energy, and we long to share it with you! See ya there!” - SteveSic Evans-van der Harten of Omnia
Hailing from the Netherlands and founded by the creative minds of SteveSic and Jenny Evans-van der Harten, and featuring the musical talents of Philip Steenbergen, DaphydCrow Sens, and Rob van Barschot, Omnia’s sound has brought them acclaim and thousands of passionate fans across Europe.
If you’re one of the legion US fans who have already discovered Omnia, here’s your chance to finally see them live on stage HERE IN THE US. And if you’ve never heard Omnia before, prepare for thrilling once-in-a-lifetime experience!
NOTE: Omnia will perform their OMNIA Pagan Folk Rock show set on Saturday night July 27th, and their acoustic OMNIA Poëtree Show set on Sunday July 28th.
PRAISE FOR OMNIA
“Omnia’s live shows are always a mixture of pure joy, ecstatic dancing, hippie entertainment and shamanic seduction …Their songs cover many genres, languages and moods, but nevertheless there is always this Omnia spirit, that you can’t withdraw.” - Sascha Blach, musician, producer, MA, Zillo Magazine Germany
“Omnia are one of the most original performing groups that I have ever encountered. There is a visceral quality to their work, that is at once contemporary and timeless simultaneously.” - Michael McGlynn, Irish composer, producer, director and founder of Anúna, Ireland’s National Choir.
