“Isn’t it great when you find out that three musicians you admire have recorded an album together?”
Not many were fooled by a supposed old film featuring a Norwegian bagpipe – actually a slightly doctored version of “Halling etter Beitohaugen” on my album “The Norwegian Bagpipe – ?“. But I still like the idea that there might be such recordings somewhere! Anyway – you may enjoy the video here!
After a successful release concert, the album “Festen i det gule huset” (“The party in the yellow house”) is now live on services around the world!
Thomas&Guro play in a nice video from FolkYuo sessions – watch it here!
Nunatak – free-improtrio with Mathilde Grooss Viddal, Tellef Kvifte and Knut Kvifte Nesheim releasing their first album during the (Norwegian) winter. While you wait: enjoy the video on YouTube!

Rauland Rambles with Ånon Egeland, Arto Järvelä oand Bruce Molsky, three widely known and highly respected musicians always sparkling in their playing!
Tellefs sjøfløyte; the second solo album from Tellef Kviftes andre soloalbum, this time a number of solo tunes on the Norwegian sjøfløyte. Several of these sjøfløyte versions are not previously recorded or played in concerts, and may accordingly, be heard for the first time on this album! Tellefs first solo album was released last year: Den norske sekkepipa – ?
