Nordic Fiddlers Bloc

Just found myself another favorite group of Fiddlers! 

The members: Kevin Henderson (Fiddle) is from Shetland, Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Hardanger Fiddle & Octave Fiddle) is from Norway, and Anders Hall (Viola & Fiddle) is from Sweden - a great mix of Fiddle backgrounds! 

I have to make this a priority to learn!  It's a really sweet tune co-written by Olav Luksengård Mjelva. 

Fjellvåk (Mountain Bird) 

Kevin Henderson wrote these fun tunes - LOVE THEM!  

Un-named Shetland Reel

Talons Trip to Thompson Island

Kevin composed this for a friend - on the Bonfrost album! 

Adams Nightmare

Fabulous slower tune from Olav Luksengård Mjelva!

The more of their music I hear, the more I like!

Think I better learn something here!

Here's a little more info on Nordic Fiddlers Bloc! 

Really interesting part of a podcast interview by Julie Amacher, at 'Your Classical' Minnesota Public Radio (06/09/2021)!

Nothing like a little great music with a story! 🤗
