Scott and Johanna Hongell-Darsee (USA/Finland) present The Mountain King, a production told in Medieval Ballads about a Mythical Being of Scandinavian Legend who allures a certain young woman into his underworld, a story that parallels the Ancient Greek Myth of Persephone. The second set will feature songs from 2014's The Wandering Ballad CD, which was nominated by New Mexico Music Awards for Best Vocal Performance.

The show will feature special guests Christopher A. Carlson, Dain Forsythe, Larry Otis and other surprise guests.

This is AMP Concerts' third presentation at the Outpost with the Scott and Johanna Hongell-Darsee. They research, edit, translate, adapt and arrange traditional melodies and lyrics from Scandinavia, British Isles, Europe, India, and North America and perform them in their own unique way. Both modern and traditional instruments are used.

In May 2014  they presented The Mountan King at Greenwich Village's Historic Provincetown Playhouse where it was described by a NYU student as "...delightfully magical and eerily contemplative."

Mel Minter, of Albuquerque the Magazine, wrote in 2014's "Roaming the Collective Unconscious in Songs Centuries Old": "Live or recorded, the old songs tug at the nether regions of the brain, stirring up wonder, fear, and perhaps most disconcerting or comforting, recognition."

Johanna (Vocals/Flutes/Jouhikko) began her performing arts career in 1986. She has an education in mime and theater from the Lecoq School in Paris, France as well as in Classical Indian Dance with Gurus Sri Kama Dev, Smt Savithri Jagannatha Rao. and Kalanidhi Narayanan of Chennai, India. The past 20 years she has researched and performed medieval and traditional ballads. Before moving to New Mexico in 2001, she led the company Teater Bava in Malmö. She performed in Scandinavia, Europe, USA and India, including Festivals of Avignon in France, La Batie in Switzerland, Tampere in Finland, Differenta Sensationi in Italy, Theater of Creation in USA, Kobenhavn Sommerscene in Denmark, as well as numerous festivals in Sweden. She has taught Bharata Natyam as a guest artist at University of New Mexico Department of Theater and Dance.

Scott (Guitars/Weissenborn/Bass) is an artist and musician who spent many years in Europe before moving back to the USA in 2001. Parallel to his artistic pursuits, he worked as a consultant at Ballet companies such as Dance Theatre of Harlem, London Festival Ballet, The English National Ballet, The Royal Danish Ballet and Hamburg Ballet. He also taught at the Danish State School of Modern Dance and worked at Teater Bava as a sound engineer and painter. Scott composes innovative arrangements and original themes on string instruments.
