DMA FOLK ALL STARS DANCE BAND 2014, by the Norwegian photographer, Knut Utler

You take six folk musicians who never really shared a stage all together, and you ask them to come to Copenhagen, traveling from every corner of the country in late November 2014. Then you put them on stage in Copenhagen Jazzhouse, right after they gave away the awards at the Danish Music Award Folk (Danish “Grammy”) Galla Show, asking them to play for a one hour long traditional dance, and The DMA Folk All Stars Dance Band is born! In the band, collected by fiddler Kristian Bugge, was/is:

Kristian Bugge: Violin, Mette Kathrine Jensen: Chromatic Accordion, Sonnich Lydom: Diatonic accordion, harmonicas, Anders Ringgaard: Trombone, Malene Beck: Piano & me myself on guitar.

We hope that the band will be booked to perform at some of next summer’s festivals in and outside Denmark.
