Annika Westgård is a harding fiddle player and folk singer from Kragerø (Telemark).
It is especially the Telemark tradition she has immersed herself in, but she also plays tunes from other parts of the country and she has a great love for Swedish folk music. She therefore has a large repertoire consisting of Swedish folk tunes and shows. Annika also composes her own tunes.
Kevin Henderson is an internationally recognized fiddler from Shetland, living in Kragerø. Kevin's musical expression is built on the rich fiddle music tradition from Shetland, and is inspired by his long participation in leading bands such as Boys of the Lough, Fiddlers Bid, Session A9 and Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. The result is expressive and adventurous, an individual musical style of its own.
