JORUN MARIE KVERNBERG (1979) is one of few folk musicians in Norway today presenting the traditional fiddle music of Møre & Romsdal. Through her music, Jorun Marie Kvernberg displays the great variety of her tradition. Listen to merry dancing tunes from the isles outside Romsdal, sober springar from grandfather Peter L. Rypdal and colourful waltzes from Nordmøre.

Jorun Marie Kvernberg’s debut album was nominated for two Norwegian Folk Music Awards in 2007, and Kvernberg was one of the finalists in the Norwegian Concert Institute’s programme for launching new folk music artists, Intro-folk, in 2007. In 2005 she won the Norwegian Performing Rights Society’s Edvard Prize for a commissioned work.

Beside her solo projects Kvernberg plays in Majorstuen, Tindra, Unni Boksasp Ensemble and also with Gabriel Fliflets project Valseria.

“Picking up my fiddle fills me with confidence and creative spirit. To me, the fiddle is a means of communication, and traditional music gives me the freedom to express myself the way I want. When facing an audience, I’ve found that traditional music, with its sincere, intimate and powerful style, is particularly suited to touching people’s hearts.” - Jorun Marie Kvernberg
