Northern Resonance is the Scandinavian string trio that takes newly composed folk music into a new soundscape. With their previously untested combination of instruments; viola d’amore, hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa they let Scandinavian music meet explosive rhythms and grand chamber-like arrangements that takes folk music in a new direction. All members are highly skilled and accomplished musicians, rooted in traditional music. With an intense musical connection that is rare to come across, they invite you into their world of compositions. There is great life in their tunes, and the trio knows how to bring it out.

With the Swedish Grammy nominated debut album from 2020, Northern Resonance have already established themselves with a glorious sound and have impressed a broad audience worldwide with concerts that are characterized by their explosive energy. On the newly released album Vision of Three they have developed both the arrangements and the sound into something even more elaborate. Just as the compositions and arrangements evolved on the new album the sound has also taken several steps into a new soundscape.

” Old is new, and new is old; Northern Resonance combines the two on Vision of Three, touching on sounds rarely heard, contextualizing them with instruments made new in the remarkable hands of these musicians. It is joy unbound.” — Bob Fish, Folk Radio UK
