Hal & Nikolaj are an established duo on the Scandinavian folk scene, taking up the reins again after a two year hiatus.
The two young musicians have solid groundings in both the celtic and scandinavian traditions, but play chiefly their own compositions with an unsurpassed originality and musical presence.
The landscape, they take us through is a harmonious whole made up of contrasts: mature and playful, sparkling and thoughtful, ethereal and grounded.
With their understated virtuosity and inventive arrangements, the two musicians make good use of the tools at their disposal.
Both on stage and on their critically acclaimed albums, their insistence on playing exactly as they please and rejection of artistic compromise is complemented by an ensnaring charm, giving their audience an unfailing musical experience.
