Störling and Henriksson - Bland Winblad och Tulpan
Ulf Störling & Anders Henriksson
Bland Winblad och Tulpan
Giga has produced a large catalogue of Swedish folk music, with over 70 albums since the label was founded in the late 1970s. They have always had a strong focus on traditional music from the province of Dalarna. So it is surprising that their 77th release is their first from the neighboring province of Hälsingland. Bland Winblad och Tulpan presents music to be found nowhere else. Ulf Störling and Anders Henriksson's sources of inspiration passed away long ago, and there has been a major shift in style since they were young, so this duo sounds quite distinct from younger Hälsingland fiddlers. The shimmering timbre, the airy articulation and flexible bowing make their style distinctive. Störling also makes some use of a fascinating "double bowing," a syncopated harmony based on double stops.
Störling and Henriksson's distinctive technique and beautiful tunes make this a must have for lovers of Swedish fiddle music. - Staffan Jonsson
