are a new Swedish folk trio composed of Anna Ekborg
and viola d’amore
, Petrus Dillner
, on nyckelharpa,
and Jerker Hans-Ers
on Hardanger fiddle
and octave violin
. All members are sharp and highly skilled players with deep roots in traditional music and their feet into the Third Millennium.
For folk music fans, contemporary Swedish bands do not need an introduction. The legendary artistic trio Väsen, made up of veteran folk musicians, are still a giant of modern Scandinavian folk music. More recently, Nordic, another acoustic trio, made their name in Sweden and internationally thanks to their infectious charm, joy for playing, and fresh sound. And the list can go on.
In that niche, Northern Resonance find themselves at their ease. They are part of the new generation of inspired musicians paying homage to the music and dance traditions of the North, featuring great verve and fine musicianship. Coaxing fantastic sounds and feelings out of their chosen instruments, the members of the trio take you to a unique journey to the North. All Scandinavia resonates here.
With their debut album
and a series of concerts in Sweden, the trio has already placed a glorious sound and was candidate for the Swedish Grammy Awards this year.
To expand their reach, they are also part of the 2021 Global Music Match
program, under the guidance of Christine White, talent buyer & programming manager at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (USA) .
Check the band, and book them for your venue or festival! They are full of promise!
