Samling at Edinburgh Folk Club

Wednesday 9th June 2010

While their lineup now seems to have changed to a great extent, I'm sure this will prove to be an interesting night.

About Samling

"Samling is a four-piece band that binds together Norwegian and Scottish Gaelic vocal music traditions, using exciting arrangements and dramatic instrumentals. The band is part of a new movement within the European roots scene becoming known as Nu-Nordic. We take on the two traditions and weave them together into a rich tapestry of harmony and rhythm with unexpected twists.

Fronted by vocal duo Anne Sofie Linge Valdal (Fribo, Jim Sutherland, Andi Neate) and Naomi Harvey (Lurach), the songs are combined with guitar, five-string fiddle, whistle and flute to create musical landscapes unlike anything you have heard before.

The songs are intertwined with instrumental arrangements from Tom Oakes (The Auvo Quartet) on guitar and samples, and Jon Bews (eks-Malinky, Cantrip) on fiddle, combined with whistle from Naomi and the unusual and captivating sound of Anne Sofie's Norwegian willow flute. "
