Tron Steffen Westberg

Bortover All Vei ... Audio CDPurchased

The magic of a true Norwegian "spellemann" (fiddler) has seldom been presented in a more convincing way. Tron Steffen Westberg throws the spell of generations on every listener who dares to come close enough, and he demonstrates the rhythmical and emotional powers of traditional Norwegian folk music to the very limit. In old times it sometimes happened that fiddlers could become so consumed by their own playing that they frightened their audiences out of their wits. In such cases the fiddle had to be taken away from the performers by force! Westberg has got that same power in his playing, but no one should ever be allowed to take the instrument away from him!

"Solo folk fiddling from Norway. An excellent player, coupled with a marvelous recording enviroment, gives this recording high marks, recommended for both those who play the music and those who enjoy simply listening." - Cliff Furnald, cdRoots, October 2002
