SCANDINAVIAN NEW STRING TRIO
Nyckelharpa | Viola d'Amore | Hardanger fiddle
album "NORTHER RESONANCE"
Northern Resonance are a new Swedish string trio composed of Anna Hans-Ers on violin and viola d’amore, Petrus Dillner, on nyckelharpa, and Jerker Hans-Ers on Hardanger fiddle and octave violin. With several beautiful crafted and decorated instruments on stage, they are a visual treat as well as a feast for the ears.
All members are part of the new generation of inspired musicians paying homage to the music and dance traditions of the North. Coaxing fantastic sounds and feelings out of their chosen instruments, they know how to take the audience to a world where the whole of Scandinavia is resonating as one.
With their debut album "Northern Resonance" (2019), the trio has already placed a glorious sound, and was candidate for the Swedish Grammy Awards in 2021. The same year, they took in the Global Music Match program, and showcased their live performance at Womex in Porto,PT.
In 2022, they played in Russia with a symphonic orchestra at the Sochi International Winter Festival, and made their "premières" in France, Belgium, and Switzerland, before flying to the USA at the Folk Alliance International conference in Austin, in the beginning of January 2023.
