A solstice album.

„Grianstad“ is a musical journey that encapsulates the essence of the summer and winter solstices. This album presents twelve renditions of folk and traditional music.

The first six songs, bathed in the gentle glow of summer’s embrace, evoke a sense of hazy tranquility. Acoustic melodies dance like dappled sunlight through leaves, enveloping listeners in a cocoon of warmth and comfort. Each note resonates with the languid hum of lazy afternoons and the scent of blooming wildflowers. The songs in this rendition whisper secrets of long days, where time seems to stretch and linger.

In contrast, the second set of songs bursts forth with the vibrant energy of a traditional band, painting a vivid portrait of the winter solstice. Here, the music becomes a celebration, a lively dance of violins, hurdy-gurdys, and accordions.
