Einar Selvik will perform with The Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and the Norwegian vocal ensemble The Edvard Grieg Kor on May 20th.
On May 21st he will be joined by numerous outstanding artists including members of Enslaved, Ivar Bjørnson & Einar Selvik and of course Lindy-Fay Hella of Wardruna!
The concert will take us on a musical journey outside Wardruna’s usually massive soundscape, and instead present a more stripped-down and direct expression where song and instruments such as Kravik-lyre, Bowed Lyre and Hardanger-fiddle play key roles.
