New live album from the successful Norwegian traditional group.
Official Olympic Musicians
Bukkene Bruse, which is made up by Annbjørg Lien (Hardanger fiddle), Arve Moen Bergset (vocals, violin, hardanger fiddle), Steinar Ofsdal (flutes) and Bjørn Ole Rasch (Keyboards) have previously released four albums, all of which have been well recieved by critics. They have toured exstensively in Norway and abroad and held the position of "Official Olympic Musicians" during the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway.
Bukkene Bruse, existing since 1988, has over the years given numerous concerts both in Norway and abroad. Their reportoire includes a varied and exciting selection of Norwegian folk music, but also new compositions and music from other Norwegian traditions. The group aims to present the different strands of folk music that exist in Norway. Although based in local musical traditions, the group creates new arrangements that give their music a unique expression. Their musical arrangements explore and deepen the unique traits of the folk music, rather than expanding their music into other genres.
