DESCRIPTION:

Master musicians bring together three of the richest fiddle traditions in the world.

Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland) are three of the finest young fiddle players on the international folk music scene. Collectively they are Nordic Fiddlers Bloc, bringing together three of the richest fiddle traditions in the world and presenting them in a new, exciting and dynamic style.

Their sound is unique, intense and invigorating, while their live show is peppered with onstage wit and banter.

In a review of their second album Deliverance Rob Adams (The Herald) said “the musicians blend their natural understanding with great imagination, producing arrangements that encompass a fantastic range of tones and approaches.”

“I surrender unconditionally to these master musicians.” Lars Lind, Lira
