The Majestic Theater in Corvallis OR is hosting the Nordic Fiddlers Bloc on April 1st at 7:30 pm for an exclusive Oregon engagement.

Pre-show social hour at 6:30 with live Scandi music in the lobby by Vänta Bara and a display of Norwegian rosemaling art.

 The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is a fiddle trio from Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands that swiftly gained a reputation for their gripping and unique blend of fiddle music since their inception in early 2009. NFB is comprised of Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands), each regarded as leading exponents of their respective traditions.  With a firm focus on the rich traditional fiddle music from where they each belong, they have developed a sound that has been described as “unique, meaningful, intense and invigorating.” Their clever use of harmony, rhythm, riffs & bass lines creates a sound that leaves the listener enthralled but at the same time dumbfounded that it only comes from three fiddles. To date their music has taken them to the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland and across mainland Europe captivating audiences along the way. 2016 saw the release of their eagerly awaited second album, “Deliverance”, the follow up to their eponymously entitled debut album released in September 2011 to great critical acclaim. 

Vӓnta Bara, translated from Swedish as “Just Wait” is a trio with Lori Prime on fiddle and nyckelharpa, Kim Majors on fiddle and Maralyn Belgique on cello.  Collectively, they have played various forms of traditional and folk dance music for over two decades.  Their love of traditional folk music has now brought them together to explore the soundscape of Sweden.  This trio is often caught playing an impromptu set of dance tunes for Norske Runddansere at the new cultural center, Nordia House, in Portland, OR.  They are excited to share their music in Corvallis for a social hour in the lobby of the Majestic Theatre prior to the Nordic Fiddlers Bloc.  Don’t wait!  Join them Saturday, April 1st at 6:30 p.m. There will also be a showing of Norwegian rosemaling folk art by Patti Meshnik who has received awards from Norway for the skill and beauty of her work.
