Overview

Three fiddlers from three northern lands create an invigorating amalgam of their native traditions.

"On the evidence to hand, pure fiddle doesn´t get much better than The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc." — Folkworld

Trio members Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands), each regarded as leading exponents of their respective traditions, have found themselves in great demand throughout the world performing together as The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. Their clever use of harmony, rhythm, riffs and bass lines creates a sound that leaves the listener enthralled but at the same time dumbfounded that the sound only comes from three fiddles.

"Seldom before can three fiddlers have sounded so well matched as the Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. And seldom before can three fiddles have sounded so much like four and at times five instruments without using electronic trickery." — The Herald

Since coming together in early 2009, their music has taken them to the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland and across mainland Europe captivating audiences along the way. We're thrilled to welcome them back to our stage.
