Tellef’s sjøfløyte

Tellef’s sjøfløyte

This is the first complete album with Tellef playing solo sjøfløyte – the Norwegian traditional music version of the recorder. Tellef has translated a number of *hardingfele* tunes to the sjøfløyte, added a few song- and psalm melodies, as well as a couple of his own tunes. One tune is after Hellik Stuvstad, one of the two recorded performers of the older tradition of sjøfløyte playing.

The album is the second in Tellef’s solo album series. The first being The Norwegian Bagpipe -?, released last year.
