The long nights are a very special time in Nordic countries. In this seasonal concert, the three fiddlers will each lead tunes from their own country – Norway, Sweden and Shetland – and share some of the tradition of their regions and their families, bringing the warmth of the fireside with tunes played for good cheer amid the snow and darkness. And you can also expect some of the trio’s usual favourite tunes with their friendly inter-country rivalry and onstage warmth!
The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is Kevin Henderson (Shetland), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway). Each is a master fiddler in their own tradition, and together they produce wonderful harmonies and arrangements.
