Stilla ro och nära
Grevelius Polonaise
Heiemo og Nykken

Playing instruments that make most people do a double-take, Nykken weaves a cool modern slant onto traditional Scandinavian music with Swedish nyckelharpas, harp guitar, Norwegian hardingfele (hardanger fiddle), and Hardanger cello, Celtic harp, button accordion, fiddle, and cittra: a total of 180 strings! Add to that some spicy two and three part vocal arrangements, and you have a trio that will take you to another world. Barbary Grant plays Celtic harp, cello, and button accordion and sings in Norwegian; and Verlene Schermer plays nyckelharpa, harp guitar, fiddle, cittra, and hardingfele, and sings traditional and original songs in Swedish; and Kris Yenney plays Hardanger cello d'Amore (Hardy for short), and nyckelharpa and sings harmonies.
