Description:"Nøgne Fødder" (Naked Feet) contains 6 instrumental tracks and 8 songs with both Danish and English lyrics. The material is mostly comprised of new compositions from the danish musician and singer Brian Woetmann. Also a waltz (Påhængsvalsen) written by Jacob Graae Hansen, a song by Ian Anderson and 2 traditional Irish tunes is included on this album. Brian Woetmann has arranged all the music.
Gunilla Odsbøl plays cello on 2 numbers. Olav Gudasson on double bass and Carsten Kær Nielsen on piano add their weight to the last number. These guests come from different musical backgrounds: classical, Latin, jazz, folk and a lot of stuff in between.
All those elements are combined and seasoned in Woetmann's magic melting pot. If we were to put the results in a box, it could be labelled:"Danglish-jazz-romantic-funky-folk-singer/songwriter roots music"..! Brian is also part of the Danish Tradish, a trio playing Irish music and beyond.
The Irish connections from "Tradish" are clear in "Nøgne Fødder", as well as Scandinavian and other roots elements. But first and foremost,"Nøgne Fødder" is an original and personal musical statement. It's meant to give an intimate acoustic experience.
The intention is for you to feel and hear all the instruments up-close.
Brian Woetmann plays mandolin, bouzouki, guitar, acoustic bass, saw, didgeridoo, bodhrán, percussion, a tiny bit of accordion and all the vocals on "Nøgne Fødder"
