The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc
Part of our series of Live! Folklife Concerts.
The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is a fiddle trio from Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands who swiftly gained a reputation for their gripping and unique blend of fiddle music since their inception in early 2009.
With a firm focus on the rich traditional fiddle music from where they each belong, Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands) have developed a sound that has been described as “meaningful”, “intense” and “invigorating”. Their clever use of harmony, rhythm, riffs and bass lines creates a sound that leaves the listener enthralled. “On the evidence to hand, pure fiddle doesn’t get much better than The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc” - Folkworld.
