”The band Solveig Sings is named after the great Scandinavian singer Solveig Borgen. Solveig Sings has an exciting repertoire of atmospheric Scandinavian folk songs mixed with nowadays jazz, free impro, rock and contemporary classical music.

“I’m Solveig Borgen and was born in northern Norway, surrounded by fairytale landscapes with steep mountains, deep green fjords and trolls hiding behind every tree …”

Solveig Sings presents this repertoire of folk songs partly as independent songs, in a traditional way. And partly in a new experimental way while mixing it with other flavours and other colours. By doing this, the music reaches out for more freedom and lyrical expression.”

Line up:

Solveig Borgen – vocals

Iman Spaargaren – tenor saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, flute
