With their new album “Fryd,” SVER aims for new heights with freshly composed fiddle hits, mixed with old tunes in new form.

Norwegian-Swedish SVER has since 2008 put on countless performances at festivals and clubs all over Europe. The last four years SVER has collaborated with the Swedish dance-hall artist Snakka San, and created the new genre Folkhall, playing in Scandinavia and have had multiple songs on the radio charts in Norway and Sweden.

SVER consists of:
Olav Luksengård Mjelva (fiddle and hardangerfiddle)
Anders Hall (fiddle and viola)
Leif Ingvar Ranøien (diatonic accordion)
Adam Johansson (guitar) and
Jens Linell (Drums and percussion).

Olav and Leif Ingvar have played together since 2002. Vidar Berge joined the group in 2007 on guitar and together they released the self titled album “SVER”. In the spring of 2008 Anders and Jens completed the band, and they released “Fruen” in 2010. Vidar quit the band later that year and Adam joined the group. Since 2011 SVER has collaborated with the Swedish dance-hall artist Snakka San. more >>>
Born and raised in Savannah, GA, Austin Quattlebaum's sound is tinged with southern low country marsh land blues. After living in the mountains of southern Appalachia for several years his sound became steeped in traditional bluegrass and old time music . After 8 years of wilderness river guiding and living in a van as a touring musician, it’s grown it into a sound all it's own. Though he may be a resident of Portland, OR now, his childhood home shines through in the swampy tones and sleepy Southern lilt of his banjo and melodies (and in his titling, as well—it doesn’t get much more Savannah than The Ghost Tangled in the Oaks, the name of his 2013 LP). His solo performances blend gritty originals and tasteful covers; weaving 3 finger banjo, clawhammer and flat-picking guitar songs into his sets seamlessly. Sung with a bit of gravel in his throat, his sultry tunes are sure to get the crowd’s attention. more >>>
