Seldom if ever can three musicians, playing the same instrument, have created such a sumptuous and bewitching wealth of sound as the superb Shetland/Swedish/Norwegian trio Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. Exclusively fiddle-made music, entwining the players’ kindred home traditions, might once have seemed a somewhat niche project, albeit expanded by the use of octave fiddle, Hardanger and viola as well as the standard model. In the hands of Kevin Henderson, Anders Hall and Olav Luksengård Mjelva, however, it’s won extensive and ecstatic acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Prepare to be spellbound, as they are joined by guest cellist Natalie Haas.

“Intricately-patterned interplay, blending otherworldly harmonies and earthy traditional textures with sublime chamber-classical finesse.” (Scotsman)
