Himmerlandsmelodier (Tutl)

The Danish saxophone and accordion player, Eskil Romme, is a man of relatively few words, but a lot of idealism. He performs a mix of traditional and contemporary Nordic and Celtic music,a nd with his wife, he also runs an organic farm, so he knows a bit about 'roots.'. The CD features accordion player Karen Tweed (UK), the piano player Peter Rosendal (DK) and the violinist Ditte Fromseier Mortensen (DK). He is also joined by guitarist Morten Alfred Høirup, who says of Romme, "if you have a listen to the music, I am sure that you'll agree that this is a beautiful and truely original piece of work, one of the kind that stays in your head and makes you wonder."

"THE DANISH SAXOPHONE- & ACCORDION PLAYER, ESKIL ROMME, is a man of relative few words, but a lot of idealism, an idealism that he seems to be able to realize into action more often than most idealist that I have known. ESKIL IS PLAYING IN SEVERAL BANDS, traveling around the world performing a mix of traditional and contemporary Nordic and Celtic music, but at the same time he and his wife, Gertrud, runs an organic farm situated in one of the most beautiful spots in Himmerland, in the Northern part of Denmark. ESKIL IS ORGANIZING the music all year round for the local music venue, Halkær Kro, as well as the small but exclusive Halkær Festival that goes on, on the first weekend of June every year (www.halkaer.dk). ESKIL ROMME IS ALSO A GREAT COMPOSER, who just recorded the album "Himmerlandsmelodier", named after the area where he lives. The album features a few of his good friends like the accordion player, Karen Tweed (UK), the piano player Peter Rosendal (DK) and the violinist Ditte Fromseier Mortensen (DK). ESKIL ROMME himself is playing the saxophone ON THIS ALBUM, and if you have a listen to the music, I am sure that you'll agree that this is a beautiful and truely original piece of work, one of the kind that stays in your head and makes you wonder." - Morten Alfred Høirup, musician, composer and music journalist

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.

They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
