Live Music: Nils Okland + support from Trestle
Live Music: Nils Økland + support from Trestle Records
Curated by Ny Musikk
Saturday 1 September / 7pm / Free
Nils Økland is an innovative violinist and Hardanger fiddle specialist who is creatively expanding the range of the traditional music of his homeland. He is a renewer of folk music, consistently building bridges to classical, contemporary and improvised music. His playing combines freedom with respect for Norway’s musical heritage and he is concerned both with the preservation of the oral folk music tradition and with the experimental possibilities of the music when it is charged with modern impulses.
Supporting acts are Harry Broadbent and = (Milo Fitzpatrick and Nick Siddall), courtesy Trestle Records.
This is the final event in our Norwegian Season, showcasing live music, performance, film and video by Norwegian artists, and workshops and talks inspired by Pushwagner’s work. It also forms part of the Milton Keynes Summer of Culture.
