ERLEND VIKEN TRIO WILL OPEN PEOPLE AT BACKES IN 2023
After a four-year hiatus, Erlend Viken Trio is back, and this time with a project consisting of trad songs.
With harding fiddle, electric guitar and double bass, Erlend Viken Trio presents folk music with a sound image few have heard before; based on Norwegian traditional music, and with inspiration from improvisational music, desert blues and rock. The trio has toured large parts of Europe, and through their energetic live performances they have acquired many fans across genre boundaries.
¨This is music that hits you regardless of whether you are a fan of folk music, rock or blues¨. - The address newspaper.
