Jensen Bugge - Danish Folk Duo
Mette Kathrine Jensen plays a European style chromatic
button accordion with great musicality. Kristian Bugge plays lovely and driving fiddle. They have a great repertoire of tunes and play together with the ease of long-time friends and musical partners.
They have also collaborated and recorded with accordion player & fiddler Dwight Lamb of Onawa, Iowa - helping preserve the Danish tunes that Dwight's grandfather had played going back to the late 1800's.
Both play with numerous other bands: Mette with the wonderful group Zenobia (For the accordion fans - you can really hear Mette's playing shown off on this clip of Zenobia, at about 6 minutes into it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjGW65nDCPw)
Kristian also plays with the internationally touring bands Habadekuk and Baltic Crossing.
It is a joy to hear them as a duo, bringing their audiences the traditional music that they have taken time to search out and giving it a fresh new energy.
