Good things are to be expected from this follow-up from the group to the debut album, Hvonn, of 2007, which was (and still is) very well received.

 

The release is part of a touring schedule, here in the Faroes in connection with total solar eclipse week, before travelling further to Australia, where the group will perform in Brisbane on the 1st of April, at National Folk Festival in Canberra the 2nd-6th of April, in Melbourne the 7th of April, and at the Fairbridge Festival near Perth on the 9th-12th of April. Kvonn has previously toured Australia, as a full band or individuals, in 2007, 2010 (which also included New Zealand) and 2013.

 

The name of the new album is the Faroese translation of the Latin 'angelica archangelica' name of the well-known 'hvonn' plant.

 

The musical style is a windswept one, set in nature. The band's repertoire covers music, composed by the group members themselves - in particular Angelika and Ívar - traditional folk music from Scandinavia and Shetland as well as tunes from the 18th Century notebook of Faroese musician and scholar Jens Christian Svabo.

 

The group consists of Angelika Nielsen on fiddle, Sharon Weiss on recorder, Ívar Bærentsen on mandolin and guitar, Kristian Blak on piano, and Mikael Blak on bass.

 

The new album was recorded in January of this year in Studio Bloch in Tórshavn and produced by Kristian Blak. Recording engineer was Finnur Hansen, who also mixed and mastered the album in his own Finnur Hansen Studio in Tórshavn.

 

The new album will available online soon. Meanwhile, do make sure to check out and get your copy of Kvonn's debut album, Hvonn, here.
