Ageless and borderless

Hard core fiddler

Synnøve Bjørset

A concert with Synnøve S. Bjørset is a personal and vital meeting with a young musician who introduces her world of Hardanger fiddle music with passion and enthusiasm. Her story-telling ability and her anecdotes about old fiddlers, the tunes and the fiddles, make the music approachable for many more than the true Hardanger fiddle fans.
