Press coverage

Tom Armann, Budstikka 6th of November 2009 [Asker]:
"Juni Dahr delighted  (...) almost as if the audience experiences she is Victoria onstage."

Gro Austenå Berg, 10th of November 2009, Grimstad Adressetidende [Grimstad]:

"Fragile and filled with atmosphere (...) From the very first, intense water glass tone the audience sat all quiet in the little museum of Storegra farm Sunday. It became an intimate meeting filled with moods, between the audience, the musicians, Juni Dahr and love."
