      Sigrid Moldestad’s new record is called “Sandkorn”. In this new production the folk music artist focuses keenly on songs and her own material. Folk music is still a strong undercurrent in the music, but listeners will also be able to identify a wide range of other genres including folk, country and blues. “Sandkorn” includes several of Sigrid Moldestad’s own songs and instrumentals as well as Norwegian translations of lyrics by the national poet of Scotland, Robert Burns (1759-1796). “The form of expression we arrived at was a result of the interplay between the fantastic musicians who participated,” says Moldestad.

      The recordings started on Midsummer Night 2009. Generous musicians who have scattered their musical surplus beyond the songs record most of what you hear live. The pump organ, slide guitar, Hardanger fiddles, guitar, Rhodes piano, Saz, bass, el. Guitars, mandolins and viola.

      “Sandkorn” is a record that honour love, both that went well and you had to leave. Sigrid is not so concerned with genre, but hope that the inspiration from the deep Western Norwegian fjords and the high mountains can be heard in her music.

      "As long as I´ll love you as time passes and the grains of sand " (Robert Burns)
