Doggerland (DK) – North Sea Music

6,000 years ago there was Doggerland, a landmass that linked Great Britain to the continent. It was inhabited right up until Neolithic times. Then, as the ice melted, Doggerland was submerged and the North Sea was born. Since the beginning of history the sea has divided us but also brought us to each other´s doorsteps as we crossed it in search of land, trade, adventure and plunder.
Doggerland is also a folk trio based in the border area between Norway and Sweden. Consisting of two Swedes and one Englishman based in Norway, the trio’s focus is the common musical heritage of the North Sea and the lands around it. Whether they performing polskas or reels, ballads or shanties, Doggerland play and sing with verve and virtuosity. Richard Burgess’s powerful voice and concertina, Jenny Gustafsson’s charismatic fiddle and Anders ådin’s rhythmic hurdy-gurdy and delicate guitar-playing combine to make a unique and exciting sound.
