Fjärin is a trio of two Danish musicians - Søren Stensby (violin) and Kasper Ejlerskov Leonhardt (guitar) - and Swedish/Estonian bass player Johannes Vaht. On their second album they also feature three additional musicians - on accordion and flute Rune Cygan Barslund, who plays in the band Kasír; on the piano it is Oscar Johansson, who plays jazz in Copenhagen; and the Norwegian singer Mia Marlen Berg, who last year won a Danish Music Award with the group IKI for best vocal jazz release 2011. All the compositions on this album are new material . Fjärin believes that folk music has not stagnated, but can and will renew itself and be mixed with other genres. Violist Stensby explains the title of the album: "'The album is a mixture of all the music which has inspired us though the years." Fjärin belong to the new generation of folk musicians, searching their individual musical roots, to create a musical expression that gathers music traditions of Sweden, Denmark and Estonia, but also keep themselves open to improvisation and new thinking.

Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
