Rímur description

Over several summers, Trio Mediaeval and trumpeter Arve Henriksen met by the beautiful Dalsfjorden, on the Norwegian west coast. Rímur was born in that landscape. Inspired by Icelandic sagas, lilting chants, folk songs, ancient hymns and fiddle tunes, the quartet created a haunting set of songs where improvisation, mediaeval and traditional music from Iceland, Norway and Sweden fuse in lyrical meditations on time, place, belief.


This Day Pass includes New Ancient Songs, Remembrance of Times Past and this concert.
