Vetter og villskap (“Spirits and wildness”) is a collaboration between Norwegian folknik Petter Attila Naessan (banjo, Appalachian dulcimer, vocals), Indigenous singer-songwriter/language revivalist Corey Theatre (guitar, vocals) and violin virtuoso Ashley Turner, who also assists with vocals.
The material is an eclectic mix of new arrangements of Scandinavian folk tunes; original melodies and words; newly written Norwegian texts set to arrangements of North American folk melodies; a Scottish reel, and a rewritten English medieval ballad.
This performance is a bardic series of events about vetter; powerful, mysterious, often malignant beings, how they interact with humans, and how – at times – these forces may be defeated by love, music, and knowledge.
