In the last program of the series featuring Trio Medieval, the women investigate their Scandinavian roots, with some medieval and later folk songs. They are joined by percussionist Birger Mistereggen, a specialist in the rare Norwegian folk-drum tradition. Some of the medieval ballads have survived mostly because of the stories they tell. One of the singers says—“none of us grew up as a folk musicians, but we were surrounded by folk music. These are songs we have known since childhood”.
