In 2011 it’s ten years ago since accordion player Mette Kathrine Jensen and fiddle player Kristian Bugge formed the folk music duo, JENSEN & BUGGE.
To celebrate that, they’ve gathered their new and exciting”Aniversary Band” with whom they will be joined by guitar/vocal, clarinet and double bass for a lot of concerts in the near future.
JENSEN & BUGGE already met as kids when they lived at 3 kms distance from each other - near Vejle, including went to folk dancing together. Although they got on the bus at the same stop through most of the school years, it lasted long before they discovered that they shared interest in playing folk music. In fact they only really came to enjoy each other's company, after they both in (in 2001) atended the studies at the Carl Nielsen Music Academy in Odense.
The duo's first release is the DVD, "PROJEKT DIALEKT". But both Mette and Kristian has released CDs in their own names (featuring eachother) and with other groups. The CD, "SEA AND LAND" was released in April 2011, with guest musicians Morten Alfred Høirup (guitar & vocal), Bjarke Kolerus (clarinet)and Thomas Hedegaard (double bass)!
