Experts in traditional Danish music on tour in The US and Canada!

By Danish Roots |

The Danish duo, Mette Kathrine Jensen (Accodion) and Kristian Bugge (Violin), also known as “Jensen & Bugge”,  has won several Danish Music Awards (Danish “Grammy”), for their work with the traditional music of Denmark. Jensen & Bugge are right now touring The US and Canada with their show.

The duo has specialized in musical dialects from a number of Danish locations, learning from the old tradition carriers as well as quite a few dusty music collections.

A good example is the beautiful and often melancholic Soenderho-tunes from the village of Soenderho (Sønderho) situated on the small Danish Island, “Fanoe”, in the southern part of Denmark.

Another example is the unique dance music of Thy in the Northern part of the Danish mainland, Jylland, tunes that Jensen & Bugge got from playing with the old master, Karl Skaarup, who died in 2013, a couple of months after celebrating his 85th anniversary as a traditional musician.

The duo has several CDs and a DVD in circulation, and a new album is being released in the beginning of 2015.
