About this Item


  • Conversation with Northern Resonance


  • The three members of Northern Resonance speak with Stephen Winick of the American Folklife Center. The trio performs traditional and newly composed roots music on a previously untested combination of instruments: viola d'amore, hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa. Northern Resonance combines Scandinavian music with explosive rhythms and grand chamber-like arrangements, taking folk music in a new direction. The members of Northern Resonance are highly skilled and accomplished musicians and share an intense musical connection that is rare to come across. The debut Northern Resonance album, released in 2020, was nominated for a Swedish Grammy. The trio released its second album in January 2024.
