Springleiks, waltzes and hallings from Gudbrandsdalen in Norway.

Today we release an absolute superb fiddle course taught by none other than the magician from Gudbrandsdalen: Astrid Sulheim. The main focus of will be the mystical "Springleik", a three-beat rhythm that is very closely related to "Pols", "Polska" and "Springar". She also teaches some waltzes and a halling or two. We are very happy to bring you all this great folk music from such an amazing musician and we hope you will enjoy it.

Astrid Sulheim (b. 1977) is an amazing fiddler from Lom in Gudbrandsdalen where she works as a doctor. She started playing at an early age and had Rolv Brimi as her main teacher, she has also been taught by Knut Kjøk, Aumund Bjørgen, and Bjørn Odde. She has been apart of a strong community of traditional music and has been competing in the annual "Landskappleik", a national competition for traditional music since she was a kid. Astrid has won the national competition in solo playing, group playing, and with her "spelmanslag", a team of fiddlers from the same region. She is a part of the musical groups "Atterljomen and "Tufskrøkjun", with several albums that have received startling reviews.
