- A young but experienced folk music duo, danish traditional music on fiddle and accordion!

JENSEN & BUGGE already met as kids when they lived at 3 kms distance from each other - near Vejle on the Danish mainland, Jutland. Although they got on the bus at the same stop through most of the school years, it lasted long before they discovered that they shared interest in playing folk music. In fact they only really came to enjoy each other's company, after they both in (in 2001) attended the studies at the Carl Nielsen Music Academy in Odense, Denmark.


JENSEN & BUGGE has extensive experiences of playing for dancing, both together and separately or with other musicians. As well as teaching workshops and playing lots of concerts in many countries. They have toured in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Faroe Islands, Poland, South Korea, USA and Canada.

In 2010 the duo released a ”Project Dialect DVD” which was the first release in the name of JENSEN & BUGGE, but both Mette and Kristian has released CDs in their own names (featuring each other) and with other groups. The first JENSEN & BUGGE CD was released on April 7th 2011 by GO Danish Folk Music!!! You can buy it here!

JENSEN & BUGGE have started playing a lot with the accordion player Dwight Lamb of Onawa, Iowa. In June the three of them released the CD "Dwight lamb, Jensen & Bugge live in Denmark" which was recorded during Dwight's first ever visit to Denmark in May 2010.

Music journalist Chris Nickson (fROOTS and Sing Out!) writes on his blog: Project Dialekt is something that’s eminently satisfying. It gives a context for everything, a feel for local history, for time and place. Musically it’s all wonderfully smooth and played with gusto and pleasure. It helps to preserve things, which is no mean feat, and serves as a reminder that traditions are living things, not to be left in museums.
