Ugens Album på P2:
Grænserne mellem klassisk og folkemusik flyder ud sammen med de geografiske grænser. Spillemandsmelodier fra Norge, Canada og Fanø glider perfekt ind mellem hinanden og skaber noget nyt.
Der er ingen grund til at sætte etiket på musikken – den er først og fremmest catchy som bare pokker. Ugens Album er et ølhus, man ikke vil hjem fra!


The Alehouse Sessions – curated and devised by Bjarte Eike, is an ever changing and evolving insight into the music of the English 17th Century tavern. It gives audiences a window into this tumultuous period through Purcell overtures, English sea shanties, and Scandinavian folk songs thrown in for good measure. The atmosphere of a raucous port city pub in the 1690s is brilliantly evoked by Barokksolistene. These sessions have already been hailed as ‘irresistible’ [The Times], ‘superb’ [The Scotsman] and ‘fabulously unrestrained’ [The Guardian], and they have diverted away from the traditional concert model by ‘creating the effect of a late night jamming session’ [BBC Music Magazine]. ‘The signature of this project is the interaction on stage between the players and the audience. If it has to be put in a historical context, the project draws its inspiration from the Shakespearian theatre where there was a direct communication between stage and hall’ says Bjarte Eike.
