In memory of Hilmar Alexandersen

"This is mostly traditional folk music from the old Nord-Trøndelag region in Norway, where I was born and raised. The tunes were played in different ways by the fiddle masters Karl "Fant-Karl" Johansen Rosenberg (ca. 1775 -1855) and Hilmar Alexandersen (1902 -1993), among others.
I want to give a very special thanks to my father Per Olav Strøm (1951-2009), for introducing me to Hilmar Alexandersen and his musical treasure.»
