Nils Økland is a renowned master of Norway’s national instrument, the Hardanger fiddle. However, his musical outlook is far wider than just traditional music and his contributions diverse. Økland belongs to the category of musicians who have come to represent an individual sound and a musical sensibility that is completely their own. Both as an instrumentalist and as a composer he interlaces elements of classical and contemporary music as well as jazz with traditional Norwegian expressions. He mainly plays concerts with his own music with his band Nils Økland Band (Rolf-Erik Nystrøm, Håkon Mørch Stene, Mats Eilertsen, Sigbjørn Apeland) and the impro trio 1982(Øyvind Skarbø, Sigbjørn Apeland) in addition to solo concerts.
