They called him The Forest Singer. His music was country. His lyrics about everyday life, hunting, fishing, moonshining and his beloved landscape with forests, mountains, lakes, rivers and marshes.
Already in 1976 he received honorary designation "The Hedmark Artist Of The Year".
Many local artists have enjoyed his good songs and lyrics. His only album Farvel Til Grenda (Goodbye Home) is available from your network provider.
