With the support from the Danish Arts Foundation, 32 videos are now available online!
15 Danish “Rigspillemænd” (National Folk Musicians) are playing and talking about their music (only in Danish though.) Great documentation of Danish traditional music and its diversity!

Among the tunes I played when the video team was visiting my home, this Rask Kontra was selected and on the link here I tell a little about my music 🙂

All the new videos can be viewed under the Se og hør button on this web site: www.rigsspillemand.dk
