Andreas Tophøj and Rune Barslund are two accomplished young Danish musicians, performing on violin, accordion and viola to produce a sound closely linked to the Danish folk tradition but influenced by music from various countries and traditions.

Inspired by periods living in Ireland and the USA and by encounters with Celtic and Nordic musicians and musical cultures, their repertoire mainly features original compositions and is distinguished by high levels of musical and technical skill as well as captivating ensemble playing.

The duo emerged from the vibrant folk scene formed around the Academy of Music in Odense and are also known from other bands such as ZAR, Kasír and Basco. Their track, ‘The Danish Immigrant’ was awarded track of the year at the Danish Music Awards Folk in 2012.
