Since the band formed in Gothenburg in 2002, Franska Trion (’The French Trio’) has reached an increasingly larger audience. They toured with Swedish musician Håkan Hellström in 2013 and over the years they have collaborated with a variety of artists. Their tenth album The Lonely Planet (released in 2019) has been described as a journey from darkness to light. The music is unique and difficult to compare with anything else. The lyrics are touching – at the same time simple and multifaceted, funny and horrible, sad and hopeful. The band's live performances are characterized by an intense presence, the music moves from aggressive to the softest of whispers. We look forward to their concert on November 6 2020!

We’re presenting the concert series ”Grund” for the fifth year in a row! The concept is produced by Tjörn Municipality, Vatten Restaurang & Kafé and the Nordic Watercolour Museum. The idea is to offer a broad spectrum of music by exciting artists in an intimate setting at a great price. In the last five years we have presented 13 shows and more are to come in 2020. We believe in exciting encounters between the musician, audience and natural surroundings, where flashy stage shows are not allowed to get in the way of the music. And we believe that is an excellent ground on which to stand.

Previous artists on our stage: Mattias Alkberg, Sophie Zelmani, José Gonzáles, El Perro Del Mar, Mikael Wiehe, Vasas Flora & Fauna, Jens Lekman, Joel Alme, Frida Hyvönen, Anna Järvinen, Marit Bergman, Hanna Järver, Edda Magnasson and  Niki & the Dove
