Håkon Høgemo & Tom Karlsrud
Håkon Høgemo and Tom Karlsrud play traditional tunes (slåttar) from the Sognefjord region in Western Norway. Here, in the small, more or less isolated villages, old hardanger fiddle tunes have been kept alive, in unbroken tradition up till now. Høgemo, one of the true masters on the hardanger fiddle, and bearer of these traditions, has developed a unique way of playing the old tunes together with accordeonist Tom Karlsrud. They are now releasing their first album as a duo.
