Product info


In January 2019, at the invitation of fiddler Hans Kjorstad, Alasdair Roberts travelled from his home in Glasgow, Scotland to Oslo, Norway, where the two men convened with five additional Scandinavian musicians at Rikss- cenen, Oslo's centre for Norwegian traditional arts and music. Thus newly-formed, the group worked on arrangements of songs-self-writ- ten and traditional-from Alasdair's back catalogue, in preparation for performances at Riksscenen as well as at ALICE in Copenha- gen, Denmark and the bucolic western Danish island of Fan . The group was named V lvur (The Seeresses), a reference to the ancient Ice- landic apocalyptic text V luspa (The Prophecy of the Seeress).
