There is no pre-Christmas time in the culture house before Rita Eriksen and Dag Vagle have performed the concert Vinterlys, together with some of the best musicians in the country.

This will be the third year, and must be called a tradition. Last year we had four sold out concerts!

The idea behind the title "Winter Light" is that every song at the concert should be like small flashes of heat for both the audience and the artists even in an otherwise cold and dark season. And a musical celebration that the sun will soon turn. Rita Eriksen has in recent years had great success with the concert performance "Songbird" - a tribute to Eva Cassidy and in the ABBA production "Thank you for the music - We love ABBA" She is perhaps the artist in Norway who has the most duets on the merit list, and has sung with i.a. Hellbillies, Bjørn Eidsvåg, Three Little Chinese and Delbert McClinton. When Rita was to choose a duet partner on the album «Moments» from 2014, the first choice was Dag Vagle on the song «Alt te si tid». A beautiful song that naturally belongs on "Vinterlys" as the concert also has some detours from the classic Christmas music.

Dag Vagle is a solo artist and frontman in the band Helldorado and he also plays actively with Randi Tytingvåg Trio and Janove. When "Feedback" was to name the decade's 10 best records at the turn of the year, Egon Holstad pulled out the album "Bones in the Closet with Helldorado and wrote" Dag Vagle is one of our best vocalists ever and his song "Johnny's Song" is the best made here on the rock for the whole decade? Yes, I think Pinadø. "In addition to being a fantastic communicator of lyrics, he is also an excellent musician with guitar as his main instrument.

Over the years, they have met in various projects, but it was after Rita heard Dag Vagle sing "The Cinderella Song" in Czech that she thought of a collaboration at Christmas concerts. The audience will hear well-known and beloved Christmas songs, some taken from Rita's Christmas album "Welcome in" pearls from both song catalog and some surprises.

On the road is the following crew: Rita Eriksen - vocals Dag Vagle - vocals and various instruments Madeleine Ossum - fele Jon-Willy The clearing - keys Gjermund Silseth- bass
