The fiddlers’ collective Majorstuen has already imprinted itself on Norwegian music history in bold type. With absolute faith in themselves and their genre, Majorstuen have been trailblazers of Norwegian traditional music for more than ten years. Unusual arrangements of old and new tunes are paired with unfailing charisma and a finely tuned rapport with the audience. On their first live recording, Majorstuen demonstrate to the full how they goad their audiences into extasy.

For this live CD, Majorstuen have selected tunes spanning their whole career. Listeners can look forward to vital renditions of the virtuosic polka Hjelmeset, the psychedelic lullaby So ro and the perennial classic Vemod, among others. And last, but not least, the band have included the audience favourite Rett vest med Eric Öst.
