Christmas concert with Gjermund Larsen Trio / Sarpsborg
In 2006, fiddle player Gjermund Larsen started the Gjermund Larsen Trio with Andreas Utnem (pedal organ) and Sondre Meisfjord (upright bass). Their debut album, Ankomst (2008), was awarded the Spellemannsprisen in the class traditional folk music/folk dancing. The trio has created their own distinct sound, influenced by Norwegian folk music, jazz, baroque, and contemporary music.
The Soloists’ Choir’s Christmas concerts have become a tradition after the successful release of the CD «Rós – Songs of Christmas» in 2013. The repertoire ranges from Hildegard of Bingen, spanish baroque music to norwegian folk songs in new arrangements. For this year’s Christmas tour, they will put together a new program of traditional Christmas songs inspired by Gaelic music.
Conductor and Artistic Leader, Grete Pedersen.
