The moonlit glimmer of a Hardanger fiddle’s harmonies is one of the wonders of music, but though Nils Økland’s mastery of Norway’s homegrown instrument (with its four violin-like fingered strings and multiple resonating drone strings) often surfaces in themes that sound like folk songs, he draws on psychedelic rock trances, improv, classical music, and jazz. Økland is one of Norway’s most widely hailed contemporary folk musicians and in 2018 he performed a beautiful concert at Brorson’s Church on Nørrebro with his Nils Økland Band – consisting of Rolf-Erik Nystrøm, Håkon Mørch Stene, Mats Eilertsen and Sigbjørn Apeland. We’re thrilled to bring them back for a show which will close Vinterjazz 2022.
