#3941: Northern Fiddles

Email a Friend
This Is How We Fly

Listen to Northern fiddles for this New Sounds, featuring traditional folk music-inflected music, which blends these fiddles with marimba, trumpet, electronics, sax, and concertina. Hear the quartet This Is How We Fly out of Northern Ireland, whose featured instrument is the Norwegian 10-stringed Hardanger fiddle of Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, coupled with a sophisticated Appalachian hard shoe dancer, a thoughtful Dublin jazzer and a lyrical Swedish percussionist. Then, listen to music for Hardanger Fiddle and viola d’amore from the Scandinavian trio Groupa, who blend all kinds of Nordic folk.

Also, listen to minimalist-leaning chamber music from the Norwegian improvisational trio 1982, featuring Hardanger fiddles, harmonium, piano & drums. There’s music from the Irish chamber group Ensemble Eriu who mix together concertina, clarinet, guitar, and marimba with their traditional fiddle.  Plus, music from The Gloaming, and from a classic Carter Burwell film score, “Fargo.”
