Hybrid Stereo SACD
One of the most important interpreters of Scandinavian and Celtic world-music!
"Trolls, fairies, water spirits, mountain giants, elf kings and little people — those are the main characters in Kerstin Blodig`s sung fairytales. Even though the songs are mainly traditional and medieval ballads from Scandinavia, the singer and guitarist manages, without being corny, esoteric or evoking associations of Ronja Röverdatter, to transport the listener into the world of Nordic mythology." — Blue Rhythm
Out of the Woods is a collection of favorite songs about the loveliest season of all — springtime, featuring re-recorded repertoire from formerly released CDs as well as brand-new material — including three spontaneous improvisations, where the musicians sat around the microphones and just started to play.
Opulently modern, minimalistically folky, bizarre and beautiful, passionate and pure, melancholy and dreamy, soulful and sad, tongue-in-cheek and humorous — Kerstin Blodig takes us on a musical journey from Norway across the North Sea to Scotland and back home again to the land of the trolls, elf kings and wood nymphs, of breath-taking landscapes and mysterious myths.
