2014 will have the NYCity Slickers on the move from one continent to another as they travel from their New York City home base to Norway. In September, they will embark on a 2 week tour sponsored in part by the US Embassy in Oslo, the Nordkapp Film Festival, and the Finnmark Fylkeskommune. The tour will kick-off the North Cape Film Festival on September 10 at the opening ceremony in Honningsvåg. While at the Film Festival they will perform at Perleporten and offer workshops on bluegrass and Americana roots music for local talent and festival attendees. The workshops will culminate in a joint concert with local musicians, singers and choir, performing the debut NYCity Slickers' arrangement of "Honningsvagsongen". Concluding their stay in Honningsvag, the NYCity Slickers will perform a gospel service at the "Little White Church on the Hill" on Sunday . They will leave the Finnmark area on September 15 and journey south to Oslo where they will play concerts in Oslo at Kampen Bistro, Halden and Klimpt Live in Lillestrom.
"There's no way to stay stuck in a bad mood when you come and hear the NYCity Slickers." — Morten Wetland, Former UN Ambassador
