The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc - The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc
EM98 / 2011
The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc are Olav Luksengård Mjelva from Norway, Anders Hall from Sweden and Kevin Henderson from Shetland.
Norway, Sweden and Shetland have three of the richest fiddle traditions in the world, with documented historical links going back hundreds of years. The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc are now seeking to bring those historical links and traditions alive and present them in an exciting new fashion, while also remaining faithful to the roots of each tradition.
While blending the individual styles together they nevertheless allow each distinctive flavour to unfold into a combined sound that’s unique, meaningful, intense and invigorating.
