Majorstuen is a fiddlers band that has succeeded in using the complete range of artistic ingredients within the Norwegian musical heritage, thus producing breathtaking new perspectives. All play the fiddle, occasionally trading off on cello or viola. No other instruments. No electronic gizmos. But the creative force is powerful, and the feeling of freedom that comes pouring out of the music is more powerful still. Majorstuen has realeased three albums, and was awarded the Norwegian Grammy 2003 for their debut album. The line-up features five of Norways most skilled fiddlers: Andreas Ljones, Gjermund Larsen, Jorun Marie Rypdal Kvernberg, Synnve S. Bjrset and Tove Dalbakk. New album to be released 2010.
