***Gorrlaus Folk Music Series with Ånon Egeland And Anders Røine***

Tickets: 150kr/ 100Kr student

Ånon Egeland – hardingfiddle, fiddle, mout harp, willow flute

Anders Røine – langeleik, hardingfiddle and mouth harp.

Ånon Egeland is a norwegian folk musician and teacher. He plays

hardingfiddle, normal fiddle, mouth harp and a variety of flutes

(bone flute, sjøfløyte, double willow flute). He is also known for his

comprehensive knowledge of folk music in the county of Agder, and

has learned from traditional players such as Andres K. Rysstad, Sigurd

Fjellstad, Trygve Eftestøl and Salve Austenå.

Egeland has done numerous record releases, concerts and recordings

and received “Spellemannsprisen” award in 1977 for his first album “i

heitaste slåtten” (with Per Midtstigen).

Egeland was a key figure in the establishment of the folk music

department at “folkehøgskolen in Fagernes”, where he was teaching

from 88 to 96. Today he is a lecturer at “Høgskolen i Telemark, institute

for folk culture” in Rauland, Vinje.

Egeland will, among other things, play songs he has learned from

Andres K. Rysstad from Setesdal and Salve Austenå from Tovdal this

evening. This is something we are very much looking forward to. Here

you will get a chance to listen to a tonality from a different time.

Anders Røine is, like Ånon Egeland, very concerned with tonality

and rhythm. He has for instance created a langeleik together with

his brother, Niels Røine, which has movable frets. This makes it

possible to approximate the old langeleik scales that existed before

the scholars of church organ travelled around in villages in the 19th

century and changed the tonality of the langeleik into the 12-tone

equal temperament. And thus changing the whole tradition. Røine is,

like many musicians playing at Gorrlaus, proficient at playing many

instruments. Apart from langeleik he plays hardingfiddle, normal

fiddle, mouth harp, guitar, banjo and much more. He is known as

a guitar player of the duo Sudan Dudan, plays together with Hans

P. and Rasmus Kjorstad and Hans Hulbækmo in Reolo, received the

“Spellemannsprisen” in 2016 for the album “Kristine Valdresdatter”,

was elected “folk muscians of the year” during Folkealarmprisen in

2017 and has won landskappleiken numerous times playing mouth


Røine and Egeland will play both solo and together during the concert

this evening.
