Whether in his role as a minstrel or as a modern entertainer, Magnus usually performs between dinner courses – to allow guests a chance to, in turn, eat in peace, converse and enjoy delightful music appropriate to the sentiment of the event.

“When I sing at festivals or in concerts of my own, I use this experience to establish contact with the audience.”

Magnus Gräsbeck has been called a living legend, the velvet-voiced Minstrel of Turku Castle.

“Time to retire, you mean? Don’t know, look at Paul McCartney, Placido Domingo, Tom Jones … They, too, are like Stradivariuses and vintage red wine – well ripened.
And – if you rest you rust …”

When thanking Magnus for his performance, customers sometimes send over pictures, too.
