Bjørn Eidsvåg

It’s funny how we close ourselves off to things when we don’t understand the language.

Yet, we are pretty much the same the world over. I think good art, whether it be music, literature, paintings, sculpture, dance … it shouldn’t be limited by our understanding of the underlying culture.

Discovering the music of Bjørn Eidsvåg was a revelation for me.

Here is this man, living in Norway which is just 750 flight miles away (London to Oslo) and if I hadn’t been drawn to the cover of one of his albums “Rundt Neste Sving” I would never have known he existed at all.

I’m glad I took a chance on the album and by so doing, discovering a musical artist I have gone on to love.

  2. You’re very welcome, Sharine. Bjørn Eidsvåg is an interesting man. I believe he’s an ordained Lutheran minister. I’m glad you liked it. Nede For Telling is a great song too.
