Honoring the late Per Bolstad

Per Bolstad became one of the most well-known fiddlers and composers of old time dance melodies in Norway. Like his father, a self-taught and very competent traditional fiddler, Per Bolstad learned to read and write music and played both in the older way as a solo fiddler and in a more modern way with a small ensemble. Per Bolstad´s ensemble frequently played for the Norwegian Broadcasting from the 1930s onwards, playing only Bolstad´s own compositions, many of which rise to popularity – not surprising considering his abilities as a songwriter, excelling in writing short, often humorous verses.

On this CD the new Bolstad ensemble, with three fiddles, two accordions, guitar and bass, plays a selection of Bolstad´s well-known melodies and includes some that have not been previously recorded. Included on this release is also Per Bolstad himself, at 77 years of age, playing three springar tunes and a self-composed waltz. Bolstad passed away in 1967 after a successful career, being awarded the King´s Medal of Merit in Gold for his work. This album is the celebration of his 125th birthday and a securing of his important musical heritage.
