Folketone fra Sunnmøre 2014

It’s one of my favourite pieces of music and is a simple yet beautiful folktune from the Norwegian town of Sunnmøre (see photo below). Steve Bingham performs it here with his new live looping set up.  Also featured here is my original arrangement using Reason/Cubase with Steve from 2005.  Coming up in 2015 will be the full choral version with new lyrics by Jeremy Harmer. My source in Oslo confirms it’s only an instrumental so I’ve been longing to sing it for about 10 years! I’ve really fond and proud of the arrangement which has seen about 10 incarnations and I wrote the bridge melody and chords with a new intro/outro around the traditional melody in A minor.  Enjoy!
