For this my first CD with own songs, I got help for recording by NRK, the Norwegian Broadcasting. Good friends, some of professional musicians, enjoyed me by playing instruments like guitars, cello, flutes, harmonica, violin, cowbell (and some “calf” mourning!), keyboard and percussion. In short time we recorded eleven songs and ballads, inspired by folklore and traditional music – and maybe you will find the flair of the mountains in it.

“The sun is shining” is the optimistic title of this record. Here you’ll find 4 tracks: Russian- and Irish-inspired music, a rock song and a ballad - accompanied with guitars, violin, cello, flutes, keyboard, bass, drums and percussion. We also made videotape to the first track, as a humoristic tribute to a small farmers busy summertime. By the way: the photo we used for the front cover is not manipulated –  Trylla  has been one of our “ladies”, and she managed to get the saw between her horns all by her self.
