Norwegian Grammy Award 2008 for Gjermund Larsen Trio

2009-01-24
Gjermund Larsen Trio awarded a Norwegian Gammy Award 2008 for their debut album “Ankomst”

Gjermund Larsen is a fiddler who has positioned himself in the intersection between tradition and new inventions, and is by fare one of the most gifted young composer and artists at the Norwegian Folk Music scene. Gjermund Larsen Trio, consisting of fiddle, harmonium and double bass, manage to convey a certain purity of sound in its melancholic but energetic music. With the debut album Ankomst Larsen presents his own materials with his trio established in 2006, the musicans are Gjermund Larsen (fiddle), Sondre Meisfjord (double bass) and Andreas Utnem (piano, harmonium).
