Bridget Marsden: Violin
Leif Ottosson: Accordion
Mountain Meeting is the long-awaited debut album from two rising young stars of the Swedish folk scene, full to the brim of innovative interpretations of Nordic folk music. They present a selection of their own compositions and traditional material, moving adeptly between atmospheric improvisation, tight melody playing and filmic soundscapes. Meet the violin and the accordion in a way that will surprise even the most dedicated folk music listener.
”One of this year’s big albums.” Patrik Lindgren, editor in chief, Lira Musikmagasin
"...a flow of expressive, beautifully integrated and open music, original and from deep tradition, that transcends the proving of skill, speed, authenticity or repertoire." Andrew Cronshaw, fRoots Magazine
"This is the sound of innovation and tradition being extended into new places by two uniquely gifted musicians." Iain Hazlewood, Spiral Earth
The album features guest performances from Olof Wendel (vibraphone/marimba), Valter Kinbom (percussion) and Leo Svensson (cello), which adds unexpected sounds and a great dynamic span. Mountain Meeting is an album for all fans of spacious and experimental instrumental music.
