Nykkjen (Heilo / Grappa)
Turid Spildo is best known as the vocalist and hardang fiddler from the Norwegian ensemble Dvergmål. Here she is in solo mode, singing songs from the West-coast of Norway, accompanying herself on hardanger-fiddle andorgan. The tunes were collected by a schoolteacher from Sogn og Fjordane, North-West in Norway: Olav Sande (1850-1927) in the period 1880-1904. 16 of the tunes, mostly ballads, keep the old tradition alive in this simple and lovely recording.
