Vidar & Topi

Vidar & TopiNorway and Finland unite through the creativity of two of Scandinavia’s finest folk musicians, Vidar Skrede (NO) and Topi Korhonen (FI), in their new duo aptly named, “Vidar & Topi.” The duo celebrates their Nordic roots with an attentive selection of traditional tunes, and through an inspired repertoire of original music. They share a mutual drive and playfulness in their musical dialogue that reflects their deep connectedness to the world around them and their friendship.

Topi (guitar and mandolin) currently teaches at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. Vidar (fiddle, harding fiddle, guitar) has been performing in the US since 2010 with various artists, most notably Geitungen (NO), and most recently with Bruce Molsky (USA) in 2016, and Liz Carrol (USA) in 2015. Both artists have been seen and heard throughout the world with their other bands and through their recordings.
