I meant to post this link a while back but thread creep made it somewhat irrelevant and then I got a real life for a while. Anyhow try this for some info on norwegian folk music/instruments.

bassen, thanks for that link.
I sent a cassette tape of various things to Max for the Mudcat Radio. On it is a recording of a young Norwegian woman who used to live here while she attended Montana State University. She plays accordion, and the tape has two tunes that she played at our session. One is a Norwegian tune for which I have been trying to find more information. It is roughly translated in English to "The Girl From the Mountain Dreams". It is very beautiful. The first part of it begins slowly, then the tempo picks up faster. If you hear it on the future Mudcat Radio, please give us more information about it if you can.

Hi Bassen, Some years ago I picked up a CD by a group called Kalenda Maya on Norwegian medieval folk songs - I tried to see if they still existed or released other stuff but to no avail. Would you, by chance, know anything about them?

Regards Rana

Hello, Bassen! Haven't heard from you since you did such a kind thing for the lady who wrote to me looking for Norwegian children's songs for her mother! Welcome back!

To all the others scanning this thread: Have you heard Sonja Savig's recording (available only on vinyl LP) Nu Takk for Alt? Lovely singer! It's among the Folk-Legacy web site vinyl listings.

Sandy

Hi Sandy! I've been here; we also serve who sit and lurk...

Rana - Kalendaya Maya still exist. They're sort of an on again off again affair as the members are involved in other projects, groups and solo careers. They've released several CDs which are available in Norway at least

If you look under harps on the site I linked to, you'll find Tone Hulbækmo mentioned. She and her husband, along with Sverre Jensen who built her harp, are/were members of Kalendaya Maya. They released a CD a few years ago with Spanish medieval music which got a lot of attention in Europe, they toured in Spain among other things.

Alice - I'll try to catch the song on the Mudcat Radio. I tried translating the title into Norwegian in various ways without recognizing it.

bassen, the accordion player's name is Rannveig Djønne. She says the title of the tune in Norwegian on the tape before playing it, then roughly translates the title. I hope you do get a chance to hear it.

There's a lady from the North of Norway called Mari Boinnes, ( I hope I spelt her surname properly), a chap called Knut Reirsrud, and a pioneering band called "Bukkene Bruse", again I hope the spellings are right, who Annabjørg Lien plays with.
