1982 live in Bergen

The super trio 1982 played at the Bergen International Music Festival yesterday. 1982 is Sigbjørn Apeland (organ), Nils Økland (Hardanger fiddle, violins) and Øyvind Skarbø (drums, percussion), and I have already recommended their album on NORCD in this very blog.
The concert was 70 minutes of contemporary folk (or something!). We got long stretches of very quiet music, before Apeland started to move furniture around, Økland headbanged while playing the violin and Skarbø was hidden behind the drum set, doing spooky percussion stuff on the floor, and then back to normal again. Relaxing, exciting and fun! A great concert for just a small audience (20 - 25 people).
