Northern Resonance take newly composed folk music into enormous soundscapes with the audience in full focus. With the resonant string as their common denominator a soundscape is created that freely moves between subtle details and grand sounds. Northern Resonance’s goal is to give the audience a chance to witness the intense musical connection between the three of them and to listen to great compositions.

In the pursuit of innermost expression, the unique qualities of viola d’amore, hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa are combined. Northern Resonance is a meeting where the potential of the instruments and the boundaries of traditions are pushed to break new musical ground. Northern Resonance consists of the three well-established musicians Anna Ekborg, Jerker Hans-Ers and Petrus Dillner. Their different backgrounds in folk music result in brilliant compositions that catches the listener's full focus in a captivating way.

With their previously untested combination of instruments they let well thought-trough arrangements meet free improvisation in their own creative compositions that takes folk music in a new direction. Northern Resonance brings you on an exciting journey through a grand resonating soundscape that surprises both the new and most experienced folk music-listener.

Welcome to the northern resonance.

“With their close interplay, the trio moves effortlessly outside the soundscape of the tradition but moves just as easily within it. The instrument’s many resonance strings become the trio's musical bloodstream that is effervescent with both detail and boundlessness. It pulsates with the feeling of home as well as a desire to discover new land.” - Lira Music Magazine

”Thanks, Northern Resonance, for your second to none concert. Thanks to your music, we were able to travel to distant and magical lands. It was an intense and precious hour full of folk music: you are fantastic. Tack så mycket!” - Ignacio García-Perrote Martínez

In the autumn of 2020 Northern Resonance released their debut album with a release tour in Sweden. The trio is currently planing upcoming tours and to further launch the album internationally in 2021.
