Baltic Crossing is on Bandcamp

22 Dec

Christmas is just around the corner – and what better last-minute gift for a loved one than a BC album? Well-you’re in luck because all of our music is now available over on Bandcamp! (It’d be great to have a few more followers over there too, so if you’re popping by for a listen….)

Music can conjure such a perfect palette of emotions, and these days a shared joy in experiencing music is one of the things that many of us miss but are basically obliged to discard. But maybe you can brighten someone’s day a tiny bit with some of our most cheerful moments from the past years.

Stay well and safe!
Best regards from,
Baltic Crossing / Antti Järvelä, Esko Järvelä, Ian Stephenson, Andy May, Kristian Bugge

Dæily June Tune project

27 Jun
From the visit on the island of Læsø

I have thrown myself into a project where I post a new little video with a Danish fiddle tune every day in June. Local, traditional music in local settings from around Denmark.
I have been fascinated and inspired by the many good colleagues around the world, who have made these kinds of projects. And at the moment when the activity of tours, school concerts, etc. is rather low, I thought: if not now, then when? And after I came up with a title for the project, I decided to give this experiment a try!

The little clips are uploaded both on Youtube and Facebook 🙂

I hope it will spread joy and look forward to hearing what you think of the idea and if anyone has any suggestions or (tune) wishes!? Best summer greetings to all!

Selected CDs temporarily available with free shipping in the U.S!

These are the titles that this offer includes 🙂

My friend, Bill Peterson, is now offering free shipments throughout the U.S. via his record company, Missouri Valley Music in South Dakota.

To back up the weekly online concerts every Sunday (2 o’clock central standard time in the U.S.) that I’m playing from my apartment in Copenhagen, we’re offering these selected titles (see picture) for only $15 a piece including the postage during the next two weeks.
Check it out Missouri Valley Music here or email Bill at and he can invoice via pay pal.

All the best, stay safe and active with the music!

Spring project in a quiet time..

17 Apr

My good friend and fiddlers-colleague, Steen Jagd Andersen and I have taken the opportunity the past weeks to meet regularly (while keeping the distance) to practice a repertoire of Steens own compositions. A project that we started already some years back together with pianist Malene D. Beck. We’re now working on polishing the music and getting it ready for a recording later this year, more about that in a near future. A taster is already to be found here on youtube.

Between the rehearsals we also stumbled over a schottish-tune from the playing of Dwight Lamb, that we both really like. And it turns out that Steen had made an arrangement of it, here it is for download if you like!

Here you can hear Steen and me play the tune in his arrangement for two fiddles 🙂

It’s our big pleasure to announce that the “Dwight Lamb’s Danish Tunes – 2nd edition with 5 bonus tunes added” is now available and even with International Shipping! We’ve been working hard on this the past weeks and hope it can be good timing for some of you tune players out there. We hope to help relieve some of the world wide cabin fever that many music lovers have to deal with these days.

So we offer 46 old tunes from the playing of Dwight Lamb and his Danish Grandpa, Chris Jerup and Dwight’s Dad, Clarence Lamb. Transcribed by Jensen & Bugge, published by Edition Svitzer.
Warm greetings, stay safe and keep the music flowing!
