We are currently driving around Oppland Norway playing concerts for pre school children and and having a ball. The roads are icy and the snow is deep.
On one of our daily excursions we drove by an incredible old country store called Fønhus Landhandel. We stopped, bought malt beer and promised to come back. The store was a real blast from the past with all sorts or weird stuff for sale and with a work bench to repair tools and chainsaws out back. So yesterday we made good our promise and gave the old shop owner Agnar Fønhus and his wife Bjørg a short concert, bought some more malt beer and promised to come back...Marit caught us on her camera, check out this video! Notice how Agnar pulls out a couple of pieces of dried fish try'n to show off for future customers..anyone?
Agnar Fønhus is the cousin of the famous naturalist author Mikkel Fønhus. Legend has it that just up the hill on another Fønhus farm 13 people found dead around the dinner table were burried in the cellar during the Black Death of 1350.
Also head on over to my weeklyleaks player and sit back for a brilliant never before heard concert with Tracy Chapman that I recorded when I did sound for her back in 1987, this was before she released her first album. Weeklyleaks player.
