Fiddles on Friday XVII

Today we have Norwegian Fiddler Ragnhild Furebotten
Ragnhild Furebotten is a familiar fiddling figure on the Norwegian traditional music scene, coming to the fore as part of the internationally renowned band Majorstuen and going on to further acclaim with various collaborations and solo projects. Her elegant tone, lightness of touch and palpable pleasure in performing has won her appreciative audiences and a number of awards. Her current project "Never on a sunday" is an innovative meeting with six horn players, exploring the music of her native north Norway region, with traditional tunes and her original compositions arranged by two of Norway's most celebrated jazz composers. The project was premiered at the Kalottspel Festival in August 2010 and taken on a successful tour before being recorded. The album has just been released and no doubt she can expect some more awards soon Here's footage of the first concert on Kalottspel with the brass ensemble: Helge Sunde, Geir Lysne, Frode Nymo, Anders Eriksson, Marius Haltli, Lars Andreas Haug. Action (music) start at 2.00 Sorry that there is no grooveshark, soundcloud or bandcamp stream so it's all youtube today. Here's the song Drevja
