The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc

Wednesday 08 May, 7.30pm
Djanogly Theatre, Lakeside Arts


2 hours including interval 

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc are back for another fabulous evening of phenomenal fiddle music. Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands) are leading exponents of their respective traditions. Performing on standard fiddles, octave fiddle, viola and Hardanger fiddle they have developed a sound that is intense and invigorating.

They have played at major events including Tønder Festival in Denmark, Scotland’s mammoth Celtic Connections winter music festival, Cape Breton’s prestigious Celtic Colours, and the annual A Celtic Christmas Sojourn in Boston.
