The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc are a trio from Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands known for their gripping and unique blend of fiddle music.

Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands) are each regarded as leading exponents of their respective traditions. With a firm focus on the rich traditional fiddle music from where they each belong, they have developed a sound that has been described as “unique”, “meaningful”, “intense” and “invigorating”. Their clever use of harmony, rhythm, riffs and bass lines creates a sound that leaves you enthralled but at the same time dumbfounded that the sound only comes from three fiddles.

To date their music has taken them to the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland and across mainland Europe captivating audiences along the way.

“I surrender unconditionally to these master musicians. The worn concept of tradition and innovation have rarely been used as smart as this ”

LIRA

“Seldom before can three fiddlers have sounded so well matched as the Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. And seldom before can three fiddles have sounded so much like four and at times five instruments without using electronic trickery. ”

The Herald

“On the evidence to hand, pure fiddle doesn´t get much better than The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. ”
