Swedish Folk Musician Caught in “Black Hole” of U.S. Visa Process
Violinist Mikael Marin Likely Not Participating in Väsen’s 30th Anniversary Tour in Support of New Album Rule of 3
Celebrating their 30th year together as a band. But for this tour, they are likely to be limited to performing in this country as a duo. The third member, violist Mikael Marin, has yet to receive his U.S. work visa, which is currently being subjected to something called “administrative processing,” with no indication of how long it will take. This has been referred to by U.S. Immigration experts as a “black hole” in the U.S. visa process.
All three members of the trio have have successfully secured over 15 work visas over the past 25 years, resulting in over 30 U.S. tours and festival appearances. It’s likely that Marin will eventually be granted a visa, but unlikely that it will happen for Väsen's upcoming North American performances,
"What can I expect from Väsen (duo)?
You can expect an almost complete Väsen experience. Not the same as with the full band present but something as good, only slightly different.
We play a lot as a duo as well when someone in the band isn't available. A common comment after a show with a duo from Väsen is: "I really enjoyed hearing just the two of you! I heard more what was going on in the Guitar and the Nyckelharpa.”
We will play a selection of the new tunes from our new "Rule of 3" that works well with a duo, and also since it's our 30 year celebration this year we will look back into the Väsen past and play some tunes that we still really like to play after all these years. Some of them originally recorded by Väsen (duo).
So, if you have heard Väsen before you will get a new experience you haven't heard before. If you haven't heard Väsen before you won't know what you are missing!
I really hope you will support Väsen and your local presenters and come to the concert and experience the absolute best we can offer due to the circumstances." Click here for
