Event

Himmerland with Mairi Campbell at EFC/Edinburgh Folk Club
Denmark , Ghana and Sweden, is inspired by the exciting and very varied cultures of the five experienced musicians in the band. We fuse the different cultures and genres that are brought into the band, but always with respect for the origin of the traditions.

Through our UK touring over the recent years, we met Mairi Campbell and were very happy to invite her to come and play and sing with us.

On a mild autumn evening in March at one of Australia's major folk festivals, the huge crowd in the big marquee clap and shout their admiration for the band on stage.

This is a Himmerland concert, and this Danish band is one of the most travelled outfits on Denmark's roots and folk music scene.

Right now it is the drummer that has all the audience's attention. Bathed in coloured light from the spots, he sings and dances around behind his drum- kit, while his hands flash over the skins so fast that the eye can hardly keep up with
them.

Then the rest of the band join in on saxophone, violin, guitar and electric bass, and the marquee throbs with new roots and world music and happy listeners. It is as though everybody in the place has drunk of the same magic, intoxicating potion.

Himmerland tours all over the world these days, performing new music rooted in the very different styles, cultures and traditions of five outstanding and very experienced composers and musicians. Where ever the band play, they bewitch and spread warmth and happiness amongst people, performing their unique blend of old Danish ballads, whirling fiddle tunes, equilibristic improvisations, and new fascinating music composed and arranged by the band members.

Eskil Romme (sax), Ditte Fromseier (violin, vocal), Sigurd Hockings(guitar), Andrzej Krejniuk (electric bass) og Ayi Solomon (percussion) got together in 2010, played their first concerts at festivals and venues on the Faroe
Islands, in Hungary and Bulgaria in 2011, and released their first album, "New Roots Music from Denmark", in August 2012.

The album had very good reviews, and in 2013 it was nominated for a Danish Music Award (Danish "Grammy") as Folk Album of the Year.

"Himmerland were hot, they knew what they were doing and they did it very well!" (The Blog "Life with a Blackdog", Canberra, Australia)

Mairi Campbell has got to be one of the most fascinating women on the planet. (Mike Harding, The Mike
Harding Folk Show)
