TRADITIONAL FOLK SONGS AND NORWEGIAN LANGELEIK
BODIL HAUG: SONGS
OLE & KNUT AASTAD BRÅTEN:LANGELEIK, LYRA
Her songs sound best in a light and bright voice. For the last ten years they have been among the foremost langeleik-players.
BODIL HAUG was born on January 29th, 1970, in Aal, Hallingdal. Little by little she developed her own style of singing and musical expression. As she grew older she became especially fond of religious songs used by lay people. Also many of the concerts at the Folkmusic Festival at Aal were important for the further development of Bodil’s musical interests. Her songs sound best in a light and bright voice. Bodil is very talented, a generous and positive woman. She sings her songs with respect and humour, and her musical expression can be both flirting and challenging. She possesses an analytic mind and a sharp tongue, and has many young admirers. Folkmusicians and folk singers are just simply musicians of our time, Bodil says. What else could they be?
