About the group (from Norsk Folkemusikkformidling):
Blåmann Blåmann is a group of four musicians from Vinje in Telemark. They primarily play the old traditional folk music of their area, but their arrangements are also influenced by newer pop music. Their repertory spans several different folk music types, including ballads from the Middle Ages, lyrical pieces, springar and gangar dance tunes, slåttestev (short songs based on fiddle tunes), and ballad melodies. Their music-making is unpretentious, but at the same time they take care to arrange their material so that the original core is preserved. Blåmann Blåmann’s goals are to play well, have fun, and give their audience a top-quality musical experience.

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.
