An evening for songs.
– I have long thought that I’m really a ‘singer of songs’, says Sondre Bratland.
As a folk singer he has been renowned for decades, not least, perhaps, for his interpretations of religious folk tunes and the album Rosa frå Betlehem, which has been proclaimed the best Christmas album released in Norway.
This evening in Logen you will experience another side of Sondre Bratland.
– I will play a collection of songs that reflects my development, from old tunes from Telemark via country and Irish inspired songs to songs for which I have either written the lyrics or composed the melody. The lyrics I pick are what I will call words of wisdom from well-known writers such as Olav H. Hauge, Jacob Sande, and Hank Williams.
He brings with him, in his own words, ‘the good helpers from the fairy tales’ – among them guitarist Knut Reisersrud and fiddle player Annbjørg Lien, his musical partners of many years with whom he has collaborated in various constellations on a number of recordings and concerts.
‘By far the most beautiful male voice in the world.’
