More info:
Bursting with enthusiasm Erlend Viken enjoyed great success with his trio album “Frie Tøyler” in 2014. Now, three years later, a year after winning first prize in the elite Category A in the National Contest for Traditional Music, Viken is returning with a new album and a new trio. The instrumentation is the same as before – fiddle, guitar and cello – but the music takes us to constantly new places. The wide-ranging experience these three musicians have from a number of different genres is clearly evident. On three of the tracks the group is augmented by drummer and percussionist Øyvind Skarbø (1982, Håkon Kornstad Tenor Battle). “Nykomlingen” emerges as yet another original album that is bursting with enthusiasm, interaction and musical inquisitiveness.

Fiddler Erlend Viken (b. in Oppdal, 1984) has won awards for his recordings together with Aslak Brimi. In 2012 Viken won the prestigious INTRO-folk prize, after which he formed his own trio. He was a member of the now defunct bluegrass band Earlybird Stringband. Viken composes music for dance and theatre productions, and has collaborated with Frikar Dance Company among others. He has played on a long list of recordings

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.
