Norwegian tunes this week: We are joined by our friend Alix Cordray on zither (harpeleik)

The Oslo-based band Feleboga has charmed and delighted audiences with its eclectic mix of tunes, songs and dances from the Appalachians and Norway. Performing on fiddles, hardingfele, guitar and banjo, the band has performed concerts, appeared at festivals, played for and called dances and taught at workshops in Germany, Poland, Iceland, Thailand, Norway and the US. Since May 2020, Feleboga played weekly live-streamed "Coffee Break" performances from their living room. After 52 shows, the band will release their newest CD and is very happy to be performing live shows again.

Feleboga ("fiddle bows") was founded as a hardingfele duo by Hans-Hinrich and Elizabeth in 1999. Mattias joined his parents playing spoons and dancing when he was five, and playing fiddle, hardingfele and ukulele from the age of ten, Mattias is now a student at the Norwegian State Academy of Music and performs with his own bands The Moosewhisperers and Gangarstubbgutta.

With the addition of Paul Kirby on vocals and banjo and Alix Cordray on bass, Feleboga Stringband performs Appalachian string band music:  toe-tapping hoedowns, lively songs with three-part refrain singing, and mournful ballads from the mountains and sea. Feleboga is dedicated to presenting and teaching traditional Appalachian dance including southern squares, big circle dances and solo flat-footing or clogging. Alix is a well-known dance instructor with an ability to encourage everyone to join the dance and Hans-Hinrich has learned to call dances from master caller Phil Jamison while Mattias has picked up dance calling just by living in the tradition.
