Vigorous folk music. It is played in a way that is precise, lively, beautiful and inspiring. It seems like they share the same brain, heart and fingers; they play that well together. CD review: Geir Hovsjo - Ostlendingen/Hamar Dagblad

Biography

The most exciting folk music duo in Norway today. Starting out from Norwegian fiddle music they have together managed to create a modern and playful musical expression with inspiring arrangements.

BRITT PERNILLE FRØHOLM has been exploring many different ways of employing her knowledge of Norwegian folk music traditions, for instance by playing contemporary music, collaborating with composers, and improvising with jazz musicians
With her flowing performance she received great critics for her solo album "For allje dei" (2008): Frøholm treats the instruments with natural authority, enthusiasm and a elaborated notion for nuances. Every stroke performed rests on a long life of fiddle playing"

Irene Tillung from Voss, is a recognized accordionist known for her richness in details and versatile use of the instrument. She has studied classical music, but has over the last few years also worked with folk and traditional music in different settings, as an artist, composer and arranger. She plays in the group Tindra that was nominated for the Norwegian Grammy in 2007
