Culture Break: Annbjørg Lien: Kjempe-Jo

I keep messing up which day of the week it is. But then, it occurs to me that it doesn't really matter, most times.

At any rate, I decided to make Annbjørg Lien my playlist for this morning -- I seem to have more of her albums than I realized -- so I thought I'd share this little treat with you. From the description at YouTube:

Traditional tune, arr. by Annbjørg Lien and Bjørn Ole Rasch.
Annbjørg Lien plays hardingfele (Hardanger fiddle).
From the NRK program "Folk:LAB - live i studio", Dec. 2012.
The tune is released on the album "Come Home" (Annbjørg Lien & Bjørn Ole Rasch, 2009).

And of course, that's an album that I don't have.
