Originally I was trained as a classical violinist, and for some years made a living as a free-lance musician, playing in a variety of settings, including The Norwegian National Opera Orchestra. Later, I changed the direction of my musical career, and started to play with different groups and artists in the folk and ‘roots’ genre, including Trond Granlund, Somebody’s Darling, Cajun Mock Frogs, Atle Lien Jenssen, and Tony Sheehan.
Today I play a range of musical instruments, including the violin, hardanger fiddle, viola, melodeons, jew’s harps, flutes, mandolin, board zither, lyres, hurdy gurdy.
I play in the band Ford Folk, and in 2013 we released our CD Folkemusikk fra Nesodden (’Folk Music from Nesodden’). Here we search for folk music from a semi-rural peninsula of Eastern Norway, with close proximity to Oslo. Among other albums I am proud to have appeared on are the famous post-progressive band Gazpacho’s Molok (2015), and the acclaimed artist Finn Coren’s På jorden et sted (2015).
