For 15 years, Hekla Stålstrenga has built up to become one of Norway's most popular bands with its very special mix of folk music, shows and pop. With a mixture of warm folk songs, rough riffs and sad ballads, the group has managed to hit something familiar and dear in all of us. Songs such as "Har du Fyr", "Folketonen", "Vise ved Vintersolkverv" and "Siste Sang" have become public property and have long since entered the Norwegian song canon.
