Ivar Bjørnson and Einar Selvik is bringing Hugsja and Skuggsja home - by the grave mounds of the Norwegian Vikings at Midgardsblot!
"Like the old scrolls state: "the only thing better than a celebration is a double celebration!". Ok, we made that one up. The start of Midgardsblot was also the start of our collaboration, at Eidsvoll in 2014. Being invited to return for the 5th anniversary in 2019 is a thing of beauty, and we will honor the invitation by performing the best from Skuggsja and Hugsja... and what would a birthday party be without some surprises!?" -Einar & Ivar -
Ivar Bjørnson & Einar Selvik are taking music from the two albums, Hugsja and Skuggsja, along with special surprises from their respective bodies of work as composers, to Midgardsblot, - executed by the front men themselves alongside their brilliant live band consisting of percussionist and backing singer Iver Sandøy, keyboardist Håkon Vinje and Hardanger Fiddler Silje Solberg.
Expect a concert that is as rich in atmosphere and musical storytelling as it is vast in dynamics and soundscapes. From the most intimate verses with only the herald and his strings to the megalithic roar of amplified sound.
