Syng Meg Heim AlbumPurchased

"Sing me home" is the title of Sondre's new CD. The greatest icon in Norwegian vocal folk music has made a moving country-music CD. While some might think this quite a switch, the truth is that American country and Norwegian folk music are close cousins. Some of Sondre's earlier albums also show this close relationship. Many fans will remember "Luftslott i det blå" (Castles in the Air) on KKV's tribute to Hank Williams, or the marvellous version of Lead, Kindly Light on the album "Atterklang" (Echoes). But what is new to this record is Sondre's refined style where country music is his closest reference. Sondre Bratland grew up in the back country of Telemark county, where Norwegian folk music still holds a special place in the hearts of the people, and where he was deeply influenced by family and folk traditions. But his idols when he was a teenager were Hank Williams and Elvis Presley and no doubt this has influenced his interpretations of Norwegian folk music. For many years Sondre has also had a keen interest in Irish folk music. "Gje meg handa di" (Give me your hand) is a wonderful example of one of many tunes he has discovered in Ireland. The Norway ¿ Ireland ¿ US axis is easy to trace in country music and runs all the way through "Sing me home
