Ånon Egeland teaches some of "his" greatest hits, given to him over coffee and sandwiches in kitchens all around the Agder county in southern Norway. Ånon's old teachers, Salve Austenå, Sigurd Fjellstad, Andris Rysstad, Georg Brobakken and many more, gave him this musical torch to carry on to you!Start playing
About this course
Get down into the micro-tonality of these wonderful modes of playing "blue" thirds and sevenths. Ånon makes a point of playing on a regular fiddle, even if some of the tunes are learned on Hardanger fiddle. As his teachers said: "Yes. so what? It's a fiddle". On some tunes we tune down one whole tone, precisley as some of these old guys did. Learn the bowing and stomping, what to focus on and how to play this great style of fiddle music. As Ånon says: "For my sake we can drop the 'Folk', and for that matter, the 'Traditional' part of the term, and say: It's just music".
