Contemporary folk

Summers: Silvola: Kvam is contemporary folk music infused with improvisatory elements, performed with plenty of attitude.
Energetic, frenetic and danceable one moment, lyrical, tear-inducing and evocative the next, their repertoire consists primarily of their own compositions, interspersed with traditional tunes from Scotland, Finland and Norway, reflecting the members' nationalities. The sound of the trio is based on Sarah-Jane Summers' stunning fiddle-playing. Brought up immersed in the old Highland fiddle tradition, her innovative use of the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle plus her love of improvisation combine to create a highly personal, new sound in the fiddle world.
