cd cover Habbadám
Still Young (Go! Danish Folk Music)
(cdRoots code go-1510)

The Danish trio of Ditte Fromseier Mortensen (fiddle), Hanna Wiskari (saxophones) and Sigurd Hockings (guitar) maybe be thirty-somethings now, but they are as fresh as ever in this interpretive folk music recording. True folk roots and an adventurous spirt assure their youthful verve as they play and sing their way through 13 wonderful songs.

They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
