Info for Out of the Woods
The rich natural atmosphere - including birdsong and sounds from the vegetation - fits wonderfully to Kerstin’s haunting Norwegian folk ballads, her crystal clear expressive mezzosoprano and her modern virtuoso guitar playing.
“Out of the Woods” is a collection of favourite songs about the loveliest season of all – springtime, featuring re-recorded repertoire from formerly released CDs as well as brand-new material – including three spontaneous improvisations, where the musicians sat around the microphones and just started to play… Opulently modern, minimalistically folky, bizarre and beautiful, passionate and pure, melancholy and dreamy, soulful and sad, tongue-in-cheek and humorous – Kerstin Blodig takes us on a musical journey from Norway across the North Sea to Scotland and back home again to the land of the trolls, elf kings and wood nymphs, of breath-taking landscapes and mysterious myths.
