Hekla Stålstrenga "Love and Honor Tour 2019"
In February, Hekla Stålstrenga comes with his 7th album. Plata has been titled "Love and Honor" and in this connection they celebrate record release and have a tour start here at the Riksscenen before continuing on the launch tour across the country.
With his feet securely anchored in Northern Norwegian traditional music, Hekla Stålstrenga serves warm singing, happy children's rhyme, rough riffs and the sadest ballads. The band is known for its distinctive mix of folk music, shows and pops and has gradually gained several songs that have entered the Norwegian fishing canon. Songs that you have the lighthouse, the folk tones, the show of winter paintings and the last song is music many have a relationship with. So now the band comes with new music and already the singles from the album have made themselves noticed by getting much playing time on NRK P1.
The concerts with Hekla Stålstrenga are known for energy, presence and deep musicality mixed with humor, gambling pleasure and extremely competent musicians. The band consists of some of the country's most prominent musicians on their respective instruments, which means that all members are highly sought after when other artists want musical partners in their projects
The title "Love and Honor" is one of the songs on record, written by Ragnhild Furebotten. Furbotten has, as usual, been behind many of the tunes to the band. New for this album is that both Furebotten, Nymo, Trulsen and Bruvoll deliver, not just the melodies - but also their own lyrics. In addition, Ola Bremnes, Helge Stangnes, Malvin Skulbru, Geir Vildgren and Ronny Trælvik have provided texts for the record.
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Hekla Stålstrenga back to the National Stage!
