It’s not often that Morgan Kane, Kristin Lavransdatter, Per Waglen and Lensmann Geissler are mentioned in the same sentence,but when the five musicians and the composers of Majorstuen were challenged to use literature as inspiration for creating new music, they decided to employ the entire range, from modern pulp fiction to classical works, as a starting point.

Majorstuen has played close to 300 concerts in 30 countries and, through its exploratory and playful stage expression, has set a new standard for how folk music can be shared with a broad audience. In SKRIBLE Majorstuen takes the audience on a literary jaunt with highly musical stops along the way!
