Bjornsdotter-Reid

Hear this show now: | Add comments


Live session: Bjornsdotter-Reid. Airing in the second hour. Plus concert previews and a few new releases.

Emma Reid and Alicia Bjornsdotter Abrams both studied Swedish traditional fiddling at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm. They also share an interest in the UK's Shetland Isles fiddle tradition. On this show - and a new cd, Rough and Shiny - they perform in the unusual and compelling fiddle duo format. As Emma writes on her website: "The Swedish term for two fiddles played an octave apart is 'rough and shiny'. The high, shiny melody gets depth and colour from the low, rough octave. For at least 100 years Swedish fiddlers have used this arrangement technique to effectively combine the forces of two fiddles."

Among their many other musical undertakings, Emma and Alicia also play together in a band called Ditt Ditt Darium.
