Trio Tinus (Go Danish Music)
Traditional Danish dance music inspired by the legendary dance band Æ'Tinusser.
Triotinus play the traditional Danish dance music - with inspiration from the legendary dance band Æ'Tinusser.
3 of DK's most well know and active traditional musicians, Carl Erik Lundgaard (Lang Linken, solo, Puls, Danish Dia Delight etc) Vagn Dahl Hansen ( Mette Kathrine, Med kærlig hilsen, Evald Thomsen) and Anders Ringgard ( Basco, Habadakuk etc.), has for years been inspired by the unique traditional dance band Æ'Tinuser from Oksbøl in western Jutland. They were brothers - Hans, Karl and Ejnar Nielsen - and up to the 1970's they played the violin, the piano and the drums/the trombone respectively.
They had the music from their father - Martinus Nielsen - who in a generation was a folk musician himself in that part of the country. They played at society balls, birthday parties, silver weddings, golden weddings and many other occasions for more than 60 years. Æ Tinuser became an institution - when a family party was arranged you asked first Æ Tinuser, then the cook and at last the village hall - in the above mentioned order. For the party should include "soup, roast and Æ Tinuser".
TrioTinus had a tied and close connection to these three brothers. In their earlier days both Carl Erik Lundgaard and Vagn Dahl Hansen use to play regularly with the brothers. -and Andres Ringgaard managed to get hold of the brothers original trombone.
TrioTinus says: "We have no ambitions of producing the same sound as Æ Tinuser, but the inspiration is certainly there, even though the accordion has taken the place of the violin. One of the features of Æ Tinuser was that they did it their way. We play the music our way."
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.
