"Nils Økland is one of Norway's most remarkable fiddlers, a renewer of traditional folk music, building bridges to classical, contemporary and improvised music. His music combines freedom and tradition -- he is concerned with the tradition of passing music by word of mouth and at the same time to see it in a fruitful meeting with modern impulses. Hallvard Kvale, an authority on Norwegian folk music and the founder of Norway's biggest and longest running record company for traditional music, Helio, names Nils Økland a visionary, the best thing to happen to Norwegian folk music in decades, and the closest the tradition has come to a Miles Davis." Økland (Hardanger fiddle, violin), Sigbørn Apeland (harmonium, piano, organ), Torbjørn Økland (guitar, trumpet), Pål Thorstensen (double bass), Åsne Valland (vocal).
