“PALKO & Co” at KULTURBRUK 44/4
KULTURBRUK 44/4 is located on the island of Bru in Rennesøy, in a cultural landscape that extends from coast to coast, and with land that has been passed down through generations. The sky is high, the grass is good.
Following the presentation concert in June 2019, PALKO & Co has now become a project and a philosophy. PALKO & Co 2020 consists of two chamber music projects; "JUNE-HAPPENING" and "TOSPANN-CONCERT & MASTERCLASSES", both taking place at KULTURBRUK 44/4, and with plans for three projects from 2021. Old and new musician friends from near and far are invited home to an annual, musical happening where nature, presence and warm people provide the very best chamber music environment, because "PALKO & Co" wants to reach the core of the music, free of trappings and superficial artist meetings. We are especially thrilled for those who take a chance and dive into the world of chamber music for the first time! Literature and gastronomic experiences will be part of PALKO & Co as well as a project for young musicians. Join us for one or the other :)
"Co" symbolises all the necessary involvements to create a common music experience, everyone from musicians, supportive family and friends, hosts, sponsors, audience. "PALKO & Co" is not a "catwalk" for artists. "PALKO & Co" invites musicians whom have made an impact, whom I want the audience to experience, and musicians who want to experience together with the audience, and together with musical friends.
Musicians love to play for a listening audience! What you know, or not know about music is less important, but listening to music is something most of us both can and do enjoy. In fact, this is also what the musicians are doing during the concerts, they listen - to the music, to each other, and to the audience. PALKO & Co requires no dress code and no concert rules!
The venue, an old restored barn of 300 square meters, has been rebuilt for concerts and conferences. Throughout the three kilometer property, a path opened to the public in 2008. The path winds past cultural monuments, through forests and pastures. Along the path lies landscape art from the project "Horizons and Fragments", excellent for combining walk, art and music. The project was part of Stavanger's European Capital of Culture 2008. Here you can see the art along the walk. Combined with music, text and gastronomy we give you PALKO & Co.
Welcome to PALKO & Co 2020!

There is a big parking at KULTURBRUK 44/4, and the public is most welcome to take a seat in the hall half an hour before concertstart. Tickets can be purchased online, or at the entrance from 18:00.h. Easy access for wheelchairs.
Arriving by car is easiest. It takes about 20 minutes from Stavanger city center to Lomberveien 10, 4158 Bru. From E39 on Sokn, right after the tunnel, turn right towards Bru. Then first right. Drive 3 km to the pier at Bru. Keep right and follow signs for Kulturbruk 44/4.
After the concert, the audience is invited to a small get together for a snack and chat, which is greatly appreciated by the musicians and hosts!

Very nice concert with Palko & Co at Bru last night! Nice program, skilled musicians, lots of people and good atmosphere!
Great concert! And the much talked about "grand piano at Bru", got out the best in itself, thanks to Benedicte Palko's distinctive ability to slip into the deeper layers of the hammers so that the beautiful ingredients emerged in rich flora. It should be said that the grand piano has clear weaknesses, it is old, but it is definitely the good qualities that for my part will be remembered from this concert! Benedicte managed to adapt to the instrument in an exemplary manner, and made it sing out into the barn!
I really enjoyed it! Looking forward to next year.

Thank you for an undescribable concert in the barn!
Lovely Inger Lise and Magnus !!

Rarely do you feel so welcome as at Bru, as a musician, artist and audience. In environments that blend the everyday and the inexplicable, they foster that art and music can be a focal point, and create experiences that risk to do something with you as a human being... It's good to be on Bru!
