TRÅD. is a musical journey to Sweden, Norway and back again to California from the bow of world-renowned cellist Barry Phillips.
TRÅD. offers traditional Scandinavian fiddle tunes as well as new compositions in a “modern traditional” style, set in sometimes lush harmonies, sometimes energetic rhythms, but always captivating performances.
Joining Barry on this all-instrumental journey is Olof Johansson (Sweden’s first nyckelharpa national champion and founding member of the Swedish band Väsen) and from Värmland, Sweden is fiddle virtuoso Olof Göthlin.
TRÅD. features bowed string ensembles in textures of solo and duo cello, string trios and quartets and sometimes a little percussion and even pipe organ join in.
