Northern Resonance

7pm Saturday | Brass Castle Stage

Northern Resonance is the Scandinavian string trio that takes newly composed folk music into a new soundscape. With their previously untested combination of instruments; viola d’amore, hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa they let Scandinavian music meet explosive rhythms and grand chamber-like arrangements that takes folk music in a new direction. 

All members are highly skilled and accomplished musicians, rooted in traditional music. With an intense musical connection that is rare to come across, they invite you into their world of compositions. There is great life in their tunes, and the trio knows how to bring it out.

With the Swedish Grammy nominated debut album from 2020, Northern Resonance have already established themselves with a glorious sound and have impressed a broad audience worldwide with concerts that are characterized by their explosive energy. On the newly released album Vision of Three they have developed both the arrangements and the sound into something even more elaborate. Just as the compositions and arrangements evolved on the new album the sound has also taken several steps into a new soundscape. With the release of the new album the trio is embarking on a release tour throughout 2024 across 4 continents with concerts in Australia, Chile, Colombia, US, Germany and UK.

”In the process, Northern Resonance have crafted something genuinely exciting in Vision of Three, resonant with the joy of creating and playing music together with the confidence to push the boundaries of what Nordic folk music can be.” Songlines Magazine
