Caper concert with Helene Bøksle

On Sunday 14 July, Torvet in Farsund will be transformed into an arena of mystery and magic, when Southern Norway's own singing star Helene Bøksle holds this year's caper concert.

- We are proud to have been given a capacity like Helene Bøksle for Kaperuka. When she takes the Torvscenen in Farsund on Sunday 14 July at 21.00, we hope for lots of people and a magical atmosphere, says Kjell Rune Nakkestad, project manager for Kaperuka.

Bøksle grew up in Harkmark in Mandal and is known for his enchanting voice and unique musical expression.

With nine solo albums to her credit, she has made a name for herself both nationally and internationally. Her latest release, "Vegvisir", released in 2022, has garnered rave reviews. Among other things, the album led to her having the honor of warming up for the superstar Andrea Bocelli during "Palmesus" in Kristiansand.

In 2023, she was selected to participate in Music Norway's prestigious export program for Norwegian artists.

Bøksle's musical skills also extend to the film world. She has contributed to film music for well-known productions such as "Birkebeinerne", "Journey to the Christmas Star" and the Hollywood film "The Mermaid Chair".

One of her career highlights came when she contributed the music to the online game "Age of Conan", which won the prestigious Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) in 2008.

Bøksle's musical journey started early. The breakthrough came already in 2009 with the Christmas album "Det hev ei rose sprunge", which sold platinum.

Since then, she has established herself as one of Norway's most prominent artists, and collaborated with big names such as Bjørn Eidsvåg, David Urwitz, Kurt Nilsen, Secret Garden and Vamp.

- It is thanks to support from the gift fund for Sparebanken Sør that we can bring in such an attractive artist as Helene Bøksle. In addition to funds from the endowment fund, we have signed a three-year sponsorship agreement with the same bank which gives Kaperuka NOK 200,000 annually for the next three years, says Nakkestad.
