Sigrid has an excellent team of musicians with her on this album who plays langeleik , jews harp, guitars , fiddles , drums and harmonium interchangeably . Sigrid Moldestad is standing in the centre, with her communication of powerful lyrics, which have transformed from Jan-Magnus Bruheims poems to songs.All are composed of Moldestad herself.

" When I was asked to make a record of his poems for the 100th anniversary , I went systematically and began reading everything he had done. I was soon gripped by the deep seriousness in many of the lyrics of Jan -Magnus Bruheim – The big words. I think he was a particularly brave man . Though one should not look at all poetry as autobiographical , you can feel that there is a lot of him in all his poems . In that sense , he wrote incredibly revealing , honest and brave. My goal has been to make the poems into viable songs. I hope I have succeeded in this," explains Sigrid Moldestad .

The singer , fiddler , songwriter and storyteller

The singer , fiddler , songwriter and storyteller Sigrid Moldestad have a strong identity in folk music , fiddle and norwegian lyrics. With loads of energy , humor and musical intellect , she leaves forever listeners hungry for more. Her music can be full of life one moment , and then take an unexpected turn towards the sad, beautiful and dark . As a former winner of two Norwegian Grammy Awards and named ‘ Folk Musician of the year " in 2010 , she is one of the most popular- folk artists.

Jan- Magnus Bruheim (1914-1988) was born in Skjåk , but lived several years in Moldestads home county. Almost the entire album is recorded in the old school house he lived in, by the sea in Bremanger .

" The title of the album was chosen from one of his books. A lyrical prose book with lyrics about «love» , in its broadest sense. About how it is to be human and compassionate . There is something incredible longing in his words . Longing is something we all recognize ourselves in and is a driving force in all his life , I think. The way he discuss life’s most beautiful and most difficult driving force was in many ways my clue in the process. It has been a long and arduous journey to do this, but also a privilege to immerse myself so much in a poet’s life and work ,
My goal has been to make the poems into viable songs. I hope I have succeeded in this, "says Moldestad .
