Cello Unwrapped

Travel to Kings Place

Vindauga / Wind Eye featuring Sam Lee

Songlines Encounters Festival 2017
Music / Saturday, 3 June 2017 - 8:00pm / Hall One
£24.50 – £18.50 | Savers £9.50

Sam Lee & Unni Løvlid voice 

Sarah-Jane Summers fiddle

Erlend Apneseth Hardanger fiddle

Juhani Silvola guitars

Andreas Utnem harmonium

Literally meaning wind-eye’, ‘Vindauga’ is the Old Norse word that the word ‘window’ comes from.

The concept of a window perfectly describes this meeting of musical minds from England, Scotland and Norway. A window opens for two-way traffic between what is outside and what is inside. It symbolises openness, with a strong sense of identity, and is highly applicable to traditional music in the modern society. Vindauga / Wind-Eye throws open new windows to these musicians’ cultural and musical backgrounds, with the wind blowing in a strong element of fearless experimentation.

Vocalists Sam Lee and Unni Løvlid, and four top instrumentalists explore the intersections, both ancient and modern, between Norwegian, Scottish and English traditional music. It brings together virtuosity and expressive energy in a concert that never ceases to surprise and inspire. A preliminary version premiered to much acclaim at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections in 2016 and has grown out of Fiona Talkington’s Folk Conexions collaborations with Riksscenen, the Norwegian National Folk Music Stage.


Sam Lee
is a 21st-century artist, collecting new versions of old songs on his iPhone and laptop, but his repertoire is steeped in the reek and smoke of folk history. His debut album, Ground Of Its Own, was nominated for the 2012 Mercury Prize and his his second album, The Fade In Time, won two nominations in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. He sings on the soundtrack of the new Guy Ritchie film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.  Sam has taken his music worldwide to more than 20 countries.

Unni Løvlid from Hornindal in Sogn og Fjordane is one of Norway’s most distinguished traditional singers and musicians. She holds a Master of Music in folk song performance from the Norwegian State Academy of Music, where she also teaches. She has released five solo albums and has collaborated with the Eva-quartet, Garth Knox, Seán Mac Erlaine, Håkon Thelin, Remi Miura amongst others.

Erlend Apneseth is one of Norway’s most renowned Hardanger fiddle players. Traditionally rooted, in recent years Erlend has made the contemporary / improvised music scene his home. His solo album Blikkspor and trio album Det Andre Rommet both received critical praise from folk, jazz and contemporary music magazines alike.

Juhani Silvola is an extremely versatile and sought-after guitarist and producer, equally at home in acoustic folk music as in experimental improvisation, noise rock and minimal techno. He is known for his unique playing style and has released a critically acclaimed solo album and two highly successful albums with Sarah-Jane Summers.

Sarah-Jane Summers is a tradition-bearer of the old Highland style of fiddle playing with a masters degree in Norwegian traditional music and free improvisation. She’s a versatile, free-thinking and impassioned performer. Widdershins, her 2016 album with Juhani Silvola was a Top of the World in Songlines

Andreas Utnem, harmonium player with Vindauga / Wind Eye, is a Norwegian folk and  jazz musician, composer and arranger. He is a member of the Gjermund Larsen Trio, and in a duo with saxophonist Trygve Seim. He recently released his solo piano album Night Songs.
