There are exciting times coming up for The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc: new music, Fiddle Camp and new tour availability!
The trio of fiddlers, Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands), have just finished a stint in the studio recording their new album so we’re excitedly looking forward to hearing that! And if anyone has ideas for a name for it, they’re seeking suggestions over on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/thenordicfiddlersbloc/
All three of the band are respected teachers of their own traditions and their annual fiddle school – now in its third year – has become very popular. This year it is being held in Scotland from 10 – 12 August, at Stirling University. Full details here: https://www.thenordicfiddlersbloc.com/fiddle-camp/
They will be coming back to the UK to tour this year so a wonderful opportunity for audiences to start to hear the new material from the CD – as well as old favourites. There are limited dates for England and Wales still available between 28 October and 8 November and they have just announced dates for next spring: 4 to 14 March 2021. Please get in touch ASAP to discuss availability at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01661 842935. A concert with Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is a real delight – the warmth and wit on stage, amid the friendly inter-country rivalry, matches the quality of the music and the precision within which every note is played. Absolutely uplifting!
