Bjørn Kåre Odde - fele

Bjørn Kåre Odde
Fiddle - Viola - Hardanger fiddle - Composer

A 'multi-artist' is often something of a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none, but Bjørn Kåre is of a different kind; as someone who has spent most of his waking hours immersing himself in several genres of music, he aims to incorporate the best of each into his own form of expression.

It is nonetheless the folk music traditions from his home village of Garmo and the wider area of Gudbrandsdalen that lie closest to his heart. He has a deep love for - and an in-depth understanding of - the language of folk music, and he therefore feels free to be both bold and innovative in his folk music.
