Northern Resonance is the Scandinavian string trio that takes newly composed folk music into a grand soundscape. With their previously untested combination of instruments; viola d’amore, hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa they let Scandinavian music meet explosive rhythms and grand chamber-like arrangements that takes folk music in a new direction.
With the Swedish Grammy Nominated debut album from 2020, Northern Resonance have already established themselves with a glorious sound and have impressed a broad audience worldwide with concerts that are characterized by their explosive energy. On the upcoming album Vision of Three that will be released in January 2024, the trio consisting of Anna Ekborg Hans-Ers (Viola D’amore), Jerker Hans-Ers (Hardanger fiddle) and Petrus Dillner (Nyckelharpa) – has developed both the arrangements and the sound into something even more elaborate. Just as the compositions and arrangements evolved on ”Vision of Three” the sound has also taken several steps in a new direction.
“With their close interplay, the trio moves effortlessly outside the soundscape of the tradition but moves just as easily within it. The instrument’s many resonance strings become the trio’s musical bloodstream that is effervescent with both detail and boundlessness. It pulsates with the feeling of home as well as a desire to discover new land.” — Lira Music Magazine
