THE NORDIC FIDDLERS BLOC
WEDNESDAY 7 MARCH 2018 | 7:30PM
KEELE UNIVERSITY CHAPEL
The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc comprise Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland). Individually they are regarded as three of the finest young fiddle players currently working in the international folk music scene, while collectively they are now finding themselves increasingly in demand across the world due to this unique collaboration. 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 seek to bring those historical links and traditions alive and present them in a new, exciting, dynamic and meaningful fashion, while nevertheless remaining faithful to the roots of each tradition. While blending the individual styles together they never-the-less allow each distinctive flavour to unfold into a combined sound that’s unique, intense and invigorating, while their live show is peppered through with significant amounts of onstage good humour and banter into the bargain.
