 クァイア・オブ・ヤング・ビリーヴァーズは地元、コペンハーゲンの出身。フォークを基本とし、音的にはフリート・フォクシーズに近いものがあるが、もっと都会的なリズムと幅広い楽器を使用する。

 地元デンマークでは結構な人気があるらしいが、他の国ではほとんど無名な彼ら。そういう私も今回始めて聴くことになった。いかにもバイキングなヒゲ面のヴォーカリスト、ジャニスがこのバンドの核となる人物とのこと。その親父くささとは裏腹に、なんとも滑らかで美しい曲を演奏する。気温は少々涼しいながらも真夏の太陽が空に輝くなかで、何とも気分が良くなるライブを繰り広げてくれた。

 途中長いMCが入ったのだが、デンマーク語だったので理解できず。後に地元の知り合いに聞いたところ、つい先日にコペンハーゲン市内であった暴動のことについて言っていた模様(イントロのページを参照)。観客からは同意の歓声が上がっていた。一体どんなことを言っていたのか気になるところではあったが。

 海辺に面したこのフェス会場にて、始まったばかりの午後の時間にはぴったりな雰囲気ではあった。海風に吹かれながら地面に寝転がっている人も沢山いた。こういうのんびりと気持ちの良い時間をすごすのは大好きな国民だけあるなと。まさにそんなデンマークの国民性が現れてるようなフェスの幕開けだったかなと。
