An old journey to the New World
Midway through the 19th century, Norwegian migration westwards really took off. How did Norwegians experience the journey across the Atlantic Ocean to the promising American shores? And was it what they expected? Norwegian band Stampestuen immersed themselves in the archives to reclaim their ancestors’ stories. They now have a brand-new album called Brev fra Amerika (Letters from America) to show for it. These experienced musicians, with backgrounds in jazz, pop and folk, have taken up traditional instruments like the psalmodicon and hammered dulcimer (hakkebret). This will be a night when epic stories come to life, about adventurers on a quest for a fresh start.
