    Olav Lukesengard Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands), The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc are in great demand worldwide for their gripping unique blend of traditional fiddle music.

    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 and bass lines creates a sound that leaves the listener enthralled but at the same time dumbfounded that the sound only comes from three fiddles.

    “Seldom before can three fiddlers have sounded so well matched as the Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. And seldom before can three fiddles have sounded so much like four and at times five instruments without using electronic trickery.” – The Herald.

    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.

    “On the evidence to hand, pure fiddle doesn´t get much better than The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc.” Folkworld.
