"Songwriter of the year" at Danish Music Awards Folk 2017 "seems to embody the spirit of Townes Van Zandt in his elegant, thoughtful, natural songwriting" David Kidman, Fatea Magazine Danish singer and guitar slinger M.C Hansen combines the storytelling of traditional folk music with contemporary country sounds. His music echoes both his Danish heritage and his American influences. The sound of Scandinavia in American clothes - it's Scandicana! Imagine Bob Dylan playing chess with H.C. Andersen on Neil Young's front porch. A travelling musician since 2003 he plays some 120 shows a year with his own band or as the guitar slinger with The Sentimentals who tours with Jonathan Byrd, Gurf Morlix, Ed Romanoff, Corin Raymond, Ana Egge, Matt Harlan, Dana Cooper and Sam Baker. He's played the Olympia in Paris and the Hammersmith Apollo in London with Madeleine Peyroux. He tours all year and so far he's played shows in 12 different countries, toured America six times and released four albums. The fifth is on the way.
