Nordic Fiddlers Bloc

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc comprise Olav Luksengård Mjelva, Anders Hall and Kevin Henderson who come from Norway, Sweden and Shetland Islands respectively.

They are three of the finest young fiddlers currently working in the folk music scene and are in great demand playing in various musical constellations throughout the world.

They felt that combining the three unique distinctive fiddle styles together would create a special musical sound and experience.

Norway, Sweden and Shetland has three of the richest fiddling traditions in the world as well as many well documented historical links going back hundreds of years. The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc are now seeking to bring those historical links and traditions alive and present them in an exciting new fashion, while also remaining faithful to the roots of each tradition.

While blending the individual styles together they never-the-less allow each distinctive flavor to unfold into a combined sound that’s unique, meaningful, intense and invigorating.

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc released their eponymously entitled debut album in September 2011 to great critical acclaim and are currently working on their hugely anticipated second album due for release in mid 2015.

“In other popular music genres these is sometimes talk of super-groups which too often falls flat when it comes to the music. But here comes folk music’s own supergroup that deserves attention far outside the usual channels” – Lire Magazine
