Norðan - Celtic Harp & Nordic Fiddle

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

North Atlantic Soundscapes - with slideshow on big screen. Angelika Nielsen violin, vocals; Thomas Loefke Celtic harp, photography.

Angelika Nielsen - the Faroe Island's number one traditional fiddle player - and harpist Thomas Loefke combine in their soundscapes their own compositions - a hybrid of Celtic and Nordic music - with traditional music from the Faroes and Ireland.

With violin, harp and pictures the two musicians take their audiences on a breathtaking adventurous journey to the North Atlantic: Tory Island in the Northwest of Ireland, the Shetlands, Lofoten in the East, Iceland in the North and right in the middle: the Faroe Islands.

The music is accompanied by a slide show with photographs Thomas took during his island travels. The Norðan CD is available now on Tutl and Laika records.

Videos, music and pictures are on the Norðan website:

Angelika Nielsen studied music in Reykjavik and Copenhagen. With her band Kvonn, the Faroese Symphony Orchestra, with the Jazz formation Yggdrasil, with Aldubaran, with Norland Wind or as a solo artist she has toured Europe, the USA, Russia, Australia, Japan and Greenland.
