An atmospheric free concert at Fløyen by and with Morgonfrosken.
Morgonfrosken (The Morning Frog) sings songs about the big questions and topics like the universe, our thoughts, loneliness, and love, in the company of more immediate and concrete phenomena such as the elements, birds, and frogs. The music is inspired by Norwegian folk music, neatly mixed with American Old-time and British folk and pop music.
The lyrics, published in the book Når morgonfrosken syng (When the morning frog sings), are by Per Olav Kaldestad, and folk musician, singer, and composer Annlaug Børsheim have composed the music. She brings along banjo playing clarinettist Ingemund Askeland from Etne and fiddle player Mari Skeie Ljones from Lillehammer on Hardanger fiddle. Annlaug herself plays the guitar and the fiddle and sings. The group have toured for the ‘Cultural Rucksack’ and held a number of concerts for big and small at the Førde festival and Bajazz, among others. This autumn they released their sequel album Og fjøla blei en seglbåt og tanken blei en vind.
