|Stensgård & Midtliens quartet
was formed in 1978 in Lillehammer / Gausdal.
They quickly became a top act among
Norwegian old dance ensembles. They signify as a
Gudbrandsdal - Orchestra. Much of the repertoire is taken
from these areas but they were also influenced by
other regions as Romsdal and Røros.
Stensgård & Midtlien’s quartet was twice elected as
Norwegian Champions in Tradiotional Dance Music.
The quartet consists of
Stein Stensgård (accordion),
Bjørn Midtlien (femrader),
Øystein Veisten (guitar)
and Terje Lund (bass).
Stensgård & Midtlien’s quartet has a distinct,
powerful and juicy way of playing.
Sometimes they also add odd instruments like axe,
stones and inch stick to help the music off the ground!
They have made a number of exciting albums
so just check them out.
