Unni Løvlid

Unni Løvlid (b. 1976) plays piano, fiddle and the Hardanger fiddle. She picked up folk singing from her mother who was a collector of traditional music in the Nordfjord area. Løvlid has contributed to a long list of records, mostly performing folk material, but also other kinds of music.

Løvlid is a member of groups Fjøgl and Rusk. On her first solo album she recorded childrens songs, while the second, Vita (2005), was recorded in the Emmanuel Vigeland Mausoleum in Oslo with its very special acoustics. In 2006 she performed Arnold Schönbergs Pierrot Lunaire. 2013 saw Løvlid  release her first album in five years. While Rite from 2008 consists of her own compositions in the experimental electronic field, her last album LUX brings religious folk songs into completely new timbral landscapes.
