CD + 16p. booklet & descriptions (DK & UK language)
The Danish folk music tradition features a huge number of fantastic songs, from many time periods. There are happy songs and joking songs, but there are also deep and heartfelt ballads featuring stories about failure, longing and eternal love. Eternally valid items..
The duo Mia Guldhammer & Morten Alfred Høirup's lively approach to - and renewal of - the Danish singing and music tradition, together with their own compositions and their close interaction with the audience, has already attracted attention not only in Denmark but also internationally. As a consequence the duo will tour in DK in 2021, and in i.a. DK and USA during 2022.
Tradition carrier and singer Mia Guldhammer and guitarist and singer Morten Alfred Høirup gives you a broad selection of these songs. They might be old and in a foreign language, but the melodies are beautiful and good fun, and the stories behind the songs not only move and entertain you, they also offer substance for thoughts, even if some of them are several hundred years old.
The songs are being arranged for vocals and guitar, spiced up with 'mouth music' and instrumentals inspired by traditional as well as new music from Denmark.
On this new release Tral, Tråd & Traditioner you will be presented for more than 12 tracks, guests and a 16p. booklet with introductions (Danish/English)
