Fromseier Rose was my duo with the Danish fiddler Ditte Fromseier Mortensen. We performed from 2002 to 2006. Our CD, Contradiction, was chosen as the chosen as the number two European folk music release of 2003 by the editors of Folkworld and nominated for a Danish Folk Music award. The CD also features the acclaimed Irish singer Niamh Parsons on three tracks.
“Featuring many original compositions with its cool Nordic ambience, it isn’t your normal traditional CD. Ditte and Michael created an individual musical style with a strong basis in the Irish, Danish and American traditional music and with modern acoustic elements.” John O’Regan, Irish Music Magazine
Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, one of Ireland’s premier traditional fiddlers, is also an innovative performer of contemporary folk music. We got together for a few days to experiment with sound and space for piano and hardanger fiddle.
