Fjärin consists of the two Danish musicians Søren Stensby (violin) and Kasper Ejlerskov Leonhardt (guitar), and the Swedish/Estonian bass player Johannes Vaht. But on this album they are featured by three exciting musician. On accordion and flute Rune Cygan Barslund, who normally plays in the band Kasír. On the Piano it is Oscar Johansson, who normally plays jazz in Copenhagen. Last but not least, the Norwegian singer Mia Marlen Berg, who last year won a Danish Music Award with the group IKI for best vocal jazz release 2011.
All the compositions on this album is new material and Fjärin believes under no circumstances has folk music stagnated in old traditions, but can and will renew itself and be mixed with other genres.
Violist Søren Stensby explains the title of the album: "'Mixtur' means mixture in Danish. The album is a mixture of all the music which has inspired us though the years."
With this release Fjärin will make it clear that they innovative. They belong to the new generation of folk musicians searching in their individual musical roots, and together create a musical expression that gathers music traditions of Sweden, Denmark and Estonia, but also an expression, which is open for improvisation and new thinking. Their music concentrates on breaking boundaries and exploring the folk genre.
