In this new production Sigrid Moldestad focuses keenly on songs and her own material. Folk music is still a strong undercurrent in the music, but listeners will also be able to identify a wide range of other genres including folk, country and blues. “Sandkorn” includes several of Sigrid Moldestad’s own songs and instrumentals as well as Norwegian translations of lyrics by the national poet of Scotland, Robert Burns (1759-1796). “The form of expression we arrived at was a result of the interplay between the fantastic musicians who participated,” says Moldestad.

Sigrid Moldestad received Spellemannsprisen (the Norwegian Grammy) for her first solo album, “TAUS felefortellingar”, released in 2007. She has also made albums with the groups Spindel and Gamaltnymalt. Her new production, “Sandkorn”, was recorded by Morten Skage at Sporlyd Studio in Vaksdal. Skage also produced the record together with Sigbjørn Apeland and Sigrid Moldestad. Both solo recordings are on the Grappa Musikkforlag label.
