Yea, she does in that video. LOL
I like her style.

Just found out I never post any tunes from Annbjørg Lien's album, "Waltz With Me".  Annbjørg plays her hardangar fiddle for this project, featuring Mikael Marin (he usually plays 5-string Viola), cellist Christine Hanson & Old Time fiddler Bruce Molsky! 

I felt these few tracks were especially unique, but ALL were very enjoyable!  

"Home East" - I might've been on journey accompanied by a playful pod of whales! 


"Masques" - could be at home in many places around the World - mysterious! 


"The Old Car" - unique mix, but familiar themes of sound & rhythm! 


Find which ones you like best here: 

"Waltz With Me" Album Playlist


..thought about posting this in the Vals thread, but don't think these fit in the traditional sense of the word - maybe more like 'Dance' with me? 

If I'm mistaken, just let me know. 😊

Mia Marine just posted this Halloween video the other day!  

Excerpts from Mia's video description:

In Sweden, Halloween is a very newly imported thing, and many Swedes have been sceptical, thinking that it will replace our more serene version of All Hallows Eve, where we light candles on the graves and think about loved ones who have passed away. The two are very different, and on different dates, and I for one just love any reason for playing pretend games. Bring it on!

A Polska after legendary fiddler Per Jönsson Lumiainen, from Gräsmark, Värmland. Here in an arrangement by Mia Marine. There are more films in this lesson (slow melody, fast melody, sheet music) to be found at:
