Brimi, fiddle Jon Faukstad, accordion Mary Barthelemy, flute Arve Width, bas track 11-19 Liner notes by the producer Madelaine Uraneck on the LP cover from 1979 Norwegian Folk Music .....the sound of a flute long off in the mountains, a mother singing to her child, a fiddle hanging on the wall, he whirl and swirl of a Saturday Night dance.....hese are the images of Norwegian Folk Music. Norway is a mountainous country. Endless ranges with heavy winter snows divide the inhabited areas sharply into valleys and side-valleys - isolated pockets of culture, each with its own regional dialect of speeech, costume, dance and music. This is the music of one such area, the valleys of Upper Gudbrandsdalen. These villages in Ottadalen and Heidal consist of small clusters of age-old farms. Here, folk music has always been a part of life.In ritual and celebration, fun and frolic, romance and everyday routine, folk music had its place. Today folk music is losing its unchallenged grip on rural areas. But for many, it is gaining a new meaning. It is an artistic expression of a growing regional and rural pride. In these circles, village music is alive and thriving - old tunes are eagerly learned, new ones composed, and dancing is as spirited as ever. The music on side 1 is somewhat older in mood - pastoral melodies, lullabies, wedding marches, the springleik. Side 2, with the addition of the string bass, features old-time dance music as one could still hear today on a Saturday Night in Gudbrandsdalen.
