LaPichardo I've been following the SSAI for several years now and I am thrilled that they have released a CD with Nordic music. The nyckelharpa crates haunting and beautiful sounds apes and the arrangements of the songs are so enjoyable... Just in time for the Winter season!

about

NEW RELEASE!
The Longest Night explores the Scandinavian traditions around mid-winter and Lussinatten (The Longest Night) and the light and the dark of this special time of year. Our new CD includes traditional Norwegian songs associated with Lussinatten, St Lucia's day and Christmas, Hardanger fiddle tunes, Irish jigs and reels, Playford dances and an ancient troubadour Alba or dawn song. The performers are award-winning Norwegian Hardanger fiddle player and singer, Benedicte Maurseth, SSAI’s director, Clare Salaman, and harpist, Jean Kelly, playing an array of beautiful and unusual instruments - Hardanger fiddles, Swedish nyckelharpa, and clàrsach (celtic harp).

Subtle and atmospheric at times; forceful, merry and energetic at others.
A spellbinding performance .... truly original.
