Old Songs Concert Series

Friday, September 22, at 7:30 pm

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is a fiddle trio from Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands who swiftly gained a reputation for their gripping and unique blend of fiddle music since their inception in early 2009. Erlend Viken (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands), are regarded as leading exponents of their respective traditions. With a firm focus on the rich traditional fiddle music from where they each belong, they have developed a sound that has been described as unique, meaningful, intense and invigorating. Their clever use of harmony, rhythm, riffs and bass lines creates a sound that leaves the listener enthralled but at the same time dumbfounded that the sound only comes from three fiddles.

The trio crafts an evening out of their originals, instrumentals and traditional songs, as well as verses by poet Jane Yolen set to music. Harmonies blend three strong voices, paring down to just one when the story shifts shape. Donna’s fiddling morphs from light to dark, while Lui’s piano, banjo and ukulele converse fluently with Max’s guitar. 3 ravens offers a rich and joyful audience experience… and if the fiddle catches your feet, you might just find yourself dancing!

His eclectic catalog of ballads, historical songs, children’s songs, love songs, topical satire, fiddle and hammer dulcimer instruments, and even symphonic works are among the broadest in American folk music.
